Plan a Gap Year to Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of the best destinations to take a gap year in Central America.

Exploring beautiful coastal beaches on a guided gap year trip and go snorkeling, ziplining, hiking and jungle treks are just some of the highlights. Covered with palm trees and with various waterfalls, the highest point on Costa Rica’s rugged landscape is Cerro Punta which is a highly rated destination. Home to a verdant profusion of different flora, the mountain and its surroundings can be enjoyed via 19km of walking trails which snake through the Toro Negro Forest Reserve.

This country is especially popular with United States and UK citizens but people from all around the world visit. To join most gap year programs you will need to be aged 18 and over but there are trips for 16 and 17 year olds too. You will need to apply in advance to secure a place.
