FHU Abroad in Costa Rica puts the jungle at your doorstep. A popular destination for ecotourism and nature travel, Costa Rica’s incredible landscapes, rich biodiversity, and cultural heritage provide excellent opportunities for photography within a rainforest and neighboring villages as well as once-in-a-lifetime wildlife observation.
FHU’s faculty-led study abroad program in Costa Rica allows FHU students to move from the classroom to the rainforest and replace textbooks with lagoons. The educational experience in Costa Rica is designed to supplement courses in biology and photography offered during the spring semester prior to the international experience.
The program is based at the Laguna del Lagarto Lodge near Boca Tapada, Costa Rica. The lodge provides room and dining services (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), as well as laundry services and wireless Internet connection in the reception and dining area. The lodge is surrounded by 1,250 acres of tropical rainforest with more than 10 kilometers of forest trails, and canoes are also provided for free use on the property’s three lagoons.
Photography opportunities will not be limited to wildlife. Much of the planned curriculum will take place in the villages of Pital and Boca Tapada, where students will have the opportunity to interact with the local population and photograph the architecture, culture, and economy in this agricultural town.
Science students will experience hands-on learning opportunities found nowhere else in the world. While trekking through the rainforest, students will observe and conduct research on turtles, caiman, and other fauna native to the San Carlos River.
Both groups will also visit one of Costa Rica's active volcanoes, Volcán Poás.
