We designate a recommended group flight for students, which most students take (but are not required to do so). This flight is not typically chaperoned by someone on our staff. Students, whether arriving on our group flight or independently, will be met at the international arrivals area by our staff. Very detailed travel and booking instructions will be provided to all participants upon enrollment.
We typically designate a group flight in early January. Historically, we have used an early evening departure flight on American Airlines out of MIA (Miami), which allows students from all over the US sufficient time to arrive and connect with the international flight. Return is typically an early AM departure from Costa Rica, landing at MIA late morning. Students connect to a domestic flight home from there.
For budgeting purposes, round trip airfare (including a domestic flight to our international gateway) typically runs about $600 – $1000, depending on your origin airport, time of booking, and other factors.
