Costa Rica - Conservation and reforestation

Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. It contains about 5 % of all biodiversity on the planet. It was also one of the most forested countries in the world, with about 60 % of its land mass covered by forest. It is therefore the perfect place to teach future generations of nature lovers how to conserve and care for our planet.

The trip

    While in Costa Rica we will focus on responsible travel as we travel not only as tourists, but also to help promote social and environmental programs in the country. We do this through volunteer activities with our partners in Costa Rica. A typical day of travel will include a volunteer activity in the morning followed by a fun/learning experience in the afternoon. Example: trail conservation in a cloud forest followed by ziplining.

    We all know that we cannot continue the ways of the past, and this is also true for travel, if we want to continue to see the world as it exists today, we have to commit ourselves to preserving it.

    The lessons

    Joining the Costa Rica trip means making a commitment to our planet, and it starts before you even get on the plane. The teaching focuses on how to live, travel and live sustainably. Our first commitment will be to offset our environmental footprint during our trip, i.e. flights, fuel consumption, etc.

    This will be done in different ways while we are in Ranum and Costa Rica, by planting trees, collecting waste and other environmentally friendly activities.

    Corona: Restrictions, rules etc.

    As many of us know, this information may change in the coming months, but this is the current situation in Costa Rica.

    "Tourists who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and individuals aged 18 and younger (even if unvaccinated) can enter the country without a travel policy. The last dose of the vaccine must have been applied at least 14 days prior to arrival in Costa Rica" Last updated (25/01/2022)

    If you are tested positive in Costa Rica

    If you test positive while in Costa Rica, the government can issue you a "sanitary order", which is a quarantine order that can last 7-10 days and is done at a location of your choice.


    Depending on our itinerary, we may also be subject to travel restrictions in transit countries. Most likely, we will be travelling through the United States, where the current restrictions are as follows.

    "Airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older, regardless of vaccination status or citizenship, must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within one calendar day of travel.Alternatively, travelers to the United States may provide documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel".
