An Interview at Rancho Mastatal

By: Allison Herman | December 4, 2019
Topics: Interviews
Our students learn a lot at partner organization Rancho Mastatal, but they still don't know quite what it's like to live and work there year-round. That's why our student Liam interviewed staff member Ryan all about his time in Costa Rica. Here are his answers.

While he and his squad were learning about sustainability at Rancho Mastatal, our student Liam took some time to interview staff member Ryan Roberts. Liam learned all about Ryan: what brought him to Rancho Mastatal, what it’s like to live on the ranch, and how he intends to use what he’s learned in the future when he eventually leaves the ranch.

Watch the interview to find out what life is like in rural Costa Rica, and if you’re interested in visiting for yourself, you’re in luck – in 2020, students on both of our gap year itineraries and our Latin America semester program will be spending time at Rancho Mastatal. Apply today to be one of these students!
