Today, the SHU students got to meet their counterparts (“buddies”) from TEC University. We spent the day at Juan Castro Blanco National Park where we first heard some short lectures (in Spanish and English) about the park and conservation initiatives in Costa Rica and then took a hike through the park. We finished the day with a late lunch at a restaurant in the park. Tomorrow, the students will spend the day with their host families who have planned local activities for them.
So far the weather has been wonderful and the students seem very excited about the food and coffee!
