Chill Expeditions Educational Travel

It’s time to get off-grid and disconnect in order to connect! Traveling with Chill Expeditions on an eco-immersion expedition means you will not only experience the most incredible high adventure activities in pristine settings, from jungle-clad beaches to chilly, high altitude cloud forests, but you will also have the opportunity to connect with fascinating locals in an authentic way, gain a true understanding of the rainforest and its abundance in a powerful, real life context, and still have plenty of time to just chill out, enjoy delicious tropical cuisine, and reflect on your profound experience.

Cloud Forest to Pacific Beaches

Stay in the Seelye Family Lodge at 9,000 feet, built by hand by the only son who milled the wood on-site from fallen trees on their 300-acre cloud forest preserve. Then sleep in an open cave situated behind two waterfalls that you rappel down, and top it off with some time at the pristine central Pacific for surfing and snorkeling!

Adventures in Volcanoes: Arenal to Guanacaste

Explore the people and adventures that surround a few of Costa Rica’s 68 volcanoes— hike a dormant volcano and peek down into the verdant green pool in the crater, zipline through the dense rainforest canopy, visit local farmers who benefit from the rich volcanic soils, check out bubbling mud pits and soak in hot springs heated by an active volcano!

Exploring Costa Rica: Caribbean to Volcano

Experience the gorgeous crystal-clear Caribbean where rainforest meets the ocean and coconut milk flavors the rice and beans. Here you are introduced to Afro-Caribbean culture as you walk through the jungle with a local guide who calls this his backyard and learn to surf the local breaks. Then experience adventure-packed Arenal with horseback riding, waterfalls, ziplining, rafting and visiting a local organic farm.
