Winter may be creeping in here at Winterline HQ but our students are still enjoying the gorgeous weather of Costa Rica!

While many of us are wrapping our heads around our first flakes of snow, our gap year students have been soaking up the sunshine and rainforest air in Costa Rica. For the past week, our two squads have been in Rancho Mastatal learning about sustainability, and Monteverde working on their Independent Student Projects, or as we call them, ISPs. Check out the photos below to learn more about the skills they’ve been learning and the adventures they’ve been having!

Every Friday we will be putting together our favorite photos and travel highlights from the past week. So be sure to check back again next Friday for another glimpse into our programs. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out last week’s photos as well.


Ready for the adventure of a lifetime?

Lastly, our student Will Vesey made this video about the issue with water in Monteverde. He connected with a local filmmaker who showed him some new tips and tricks to better his filmmaking. After about a week learning and shooting his video, Will made this video for a presentation. Check it out!
