Research & Education:

Herencia Verde Makes Learning Fun!

We connect you with natural environments and authentic cultural experiences in Costa Rica. Our itineraries are full of hands-on activities, including saving sea turtles, volunteering at a wildlife rescue center, working on a sustainable farm, and assisting at a scientific research center. We carefully select locally owned and operated projects focused on conservation and education— projects that truly matter to the local communities we visit. You also have the opportunity for Spanish language immersion, cultural exchange with homestays and visits to indigenous communities, and service projects at local schools. Traveling with Herencia Verde will be life-changing!

Cultural programs

To know the culture of Costa Rica is to know the people of Costa Rica, and Herencia Verde designs one-of-a-kind experiences that let you learn about how Costa Ricans live day-to-day. Experience the art and history of the Boruca, one of our indigenous communities. Wake up early with your homestay family to milk the cows. Learn about organic farming and taste fresh coffee or pineapple as you have never tasted before. As you travel the country, we will provide even more opportunities for you to engage with local residents: shop in the town square, talk with the fruit vendor along the roadside, and enjoy other real-life experiences with your guide!
