Are you enrolled in a Spanish class for next year? If not, I would suggest rescheduling because BASH’s Spanish students are going to Costa Rica!

On March 23, the school board approved the Costa Rica trip that all students enrolled in a Spanish program during the 2021-2022 school year will have access to! Described as an amazing experience, the letter from the Spanish teachers to students can be found here

Let’s take a look at the details:

The trip will take place from April 7, 2022 – April 15, 2022: that’s 9 days in Costa Rica! While students are there, many opportunities await! Students will explore many cool and cultured places, such as:

  • The San Jose National Theater, a beautiful piece of architecture that has been around since 1891
  • The Poas Volcano National Park, where the still-active volcano Poás is located
  • Zarcero, an area with beautiful gardens
  • The Baldi Hot Springs, an amazing display at the base of a volcano
  • A Crocodile Safari Tour, where you can see crocodiles up-close and personal
  • The Manuel Antonio National Park, a place with rainforest, beaches, and coral reefs
  • The Carara National Park, a park in a awe-inspiring jungle
