Want to make the most out of your Wilderness First Responder course—and experience the Costa Rican rainforest?
Keep reading and you’ll discover why this program is amazing. 😀
Besides learning a ton—and gaining first responder skills—you’ll experience the rainforest up close. You’ll get to raft the Pacuare (which is awesome) and stay at an eco camp (one of our favorite places on earth).
Oh, and did we mention the abundance of Costa Rican coffee? ☕☕
The 7 day program (5-day course, 2 days on the river) includes all transport within Costa Rica from San Jose (map), lodging, meals, rafting, and an incredible course in a spectacular location.
