The Worldwide Navigators Difference
Upon arrival in Liberia, Costa Rica, transport to your quaint accommodations to meet your International Medical Relief team for the trip in Upala, a small town just south of the Nicaragua border. In the evening you will have dinner as a team at your accommodation and go through team orientation to prepare you for clinics!
Each day, you and the team will wake up to breakfast and gear up for a day of clinic. Each site will be close by and set up in community centers, schools and churches. Hundreds of Nicaraguan families and children are crossing the border each day, so you will have an opportunity to help many people in great need.
Spend your free day eating traditional gallo pinto, fresh fish and tostones and tour a nearby volcano or go to the beach! This day is yours to explore Costa Rica.
Wake up and enjoy your last morning in Costa Rica with breakfast at your accommodation. You and the team are able to depart back to the airport anytime, or stay and continue to explore Costa Rica!
