Matea's Journey to Costa Rica

Current Location

San Joaquín de Flores, Costa Rica

Hello, I'm Matea! I am in Costa Rica studying this county's history and culture. I am so excited to share my experiences with you!


We are transitioning into the dry season here which means there is a lot less rain than usual. This means that I can do a lot more outdoor activities without getting wet!


I have about two weeks left in Costa Rica, and all of my classes are wrapping up for the semester. It has been quite a journey and I'm glad to have been able to share it with you!

Field Notes

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Costa Rica! This is a very popular holiday here. Let's learn about how Ticos celebrate Christmas.


My friends and I went on a yoga and spa retreat to a resort near San Ramón. We ate tasty meals, relaxed in the saltwater pools and admired the amazing view. It was paradise!
