International Students & Flight Credits

International students who choose to fly to San José separately from the group flight will receive a flight credit on their bill equal to the cost of one group flight airline ticket.

Travel & Arrival

Students on the Group Flight receive itineraries and instruction via email prior to departure, though we always recommend checking with the airline on the day of travel to stay abreast of any flight delays or changes in schedule.  Once they have landed, students will be picked up by buses and transported directly to their on-site orientation location, held at the address below:

Escuela Social Juan XXIII
Del Palacio Municipal de Tres Rios
1.5 km al Norte y 1.5 km al Este (Antiguo Seminario Menor)
Costa Rica


On the last day of the Program, students on the Group Flight home will be shuttled to the airport to arrive 3 hours prior to the departure time, ensuring that all participants have ample time to check in. The group will then go through the security checkpoint together.
