First and foremost, get a passport if you don’t already have one!
Next, keep your eye out for the information and resources that we will be sending you about women’s empowerment. The more you know and understand, the more this experience will mean to you and the more prepared you will be to make a meaningful difference.
This trip leans heavy on the adventure and physical activity side so make sure that you are comfortable walking and/or hiking for 2-3 hour stretches. You’ll also need to feel comfortable in the water and know how to swim in order to comfortably participate in several of our Costa Rica activities.
Lastly, practice getting uncomfortable: try new foods, start conversations with people you don’t know, put away your phone for a few hours every day, etc. Traveling is exhilarating and life-changing, but it can also be full of moments that are new, hard, or uncomfortable. New people, new cultures, new languages, and new food can be a lot to take in at times. Everything you do to get ready now will make it that much easier. Just know that we’ll be there to walk you through all of it and help make the experience amazing!
