Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a rugged, rainforested Central American country with coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacific. This eco-tourism trip will include three days at the beach in Manuel Antonio National Park, a small National Park located on the Pacific Coast, two days serving with a local ministry helping an orphanage, with refugees, or in construction. You also will visit San Jose, the capital Costa Rica, and spend one day at Waterfall Garden La paz and Paos Volcano.


The trip will be based at Portantorchas, a campus for Torchbearers of the Capernwray Missionary Fellowship. Portantorchas is 10 miles from San Jose, the capital city. Founded in 1991, Portantorchas is situated on 5 1/2 acres with colorful gardens and trees. The grounds of the campus are perfect for small group activities and for spending quiet time with God.
