Sarapiquí Stories

January 11, 2012

Sarapiquí welcomed a Jewish college group of Aish students from the U.S. during the first week of January. They enjoyed rafting, canopy zip lining, jungle hikes, beautiful waterfalls, natural hot springs and volunteering. The students held a career fair and sports meet with the town leaders and sports committee of San Miguel de Sarapiquí.

As they travel through Costa Rica, the students will interact with other communities and do volunteer work with local schools.
