In Costa Rica, we have been a part of Barrio San Rafael, Turrialba for 10 years. We have rehabbed soccer fields and playgrounds, worked on sustainability projects, have a long-standing relationship with local elementary schools and high schools, and worked with seniors. The adventure is amazing. Whitewater rafting on one of the top rivers in the world, zip-lining over the canopy of tropical rain forest, and hikes to waterfalls are all part of our adventure.
