Costa Rica Frika’s high school group exchange program gives students the opportunity to host a student from Costa Rica, visit a student in Costa Rica, or do both.  Click the links for information about both opportunities.

Immersion: CHECK!

Having both options allows the program to reach more students than a traditional one way school trip.  Since the Costa Ricans typically visit first, students are exposed to a new culture and can then decide if they’d like to expand on the experience.

An exchange affects participants in many unique ways which is why the program always maintains flexibility so participants can get involved as much as they want.
