    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a very unique area of Costa Rica with gorgeous coastlines, forested mountains, Guanacaste cowboy culture and very little development. Our local communities work together in hopes of improving the area through education, with different projects in environmental awareness, art, kids' groups, etc... There are opportunities for teacher(s) to be involved in local community development. 'Pueblos' in the area often host soccer games, 'fiestas' to benefit the local schools, horse parades and fishing tournaments which are all excellent opportunities to immerse yourself in local culture.
