Knights experience "Pura Vida" during educational trip to Costa Rica
Knights experience "Pura Vida" during educational trip to Costa Rica

Earlier this summer, Bala Cynwyd Middle School Spanish teacher Señora Leslie Bullitt and a group of rising eighth and ninth grade students traveled to Costa Rica on a fun-filled and educational "Eco Tour" with EF Tours – an organization focused on experiential learning, cultural immersion and authentic connections.

Throughout the trip, the group enjoyed a perfect balance between natural and cultural experiences as students kayaked across the northern highlands' Lake Arenal, ziplined through the wildlife-rich rainforests of Monteverde and had many opportunities to experience Costa Rican culture first-hand visiting several towns and interacting with students at a local school. A great time was had by all on this once-in-a-lifetime trip, which also afforded the students a wonderful opportunity to practice their Spanish language skills.
