Feb. 2020: Discover Costa Rica

Note: This trip is SOLD OUT.

Escape the cold dark winter days and fly south to a jungle paradise with friends of Michigan Radio in sun-soaked Costa Rica. You’ll join Lester Graham, host of Michigan Radio's The Environment Report, on this tropical expedition, where you’ll discover a vibrant land unlike any other. Costa Rica boasts greater biodiversity than all of Europe and North America, with over 850 species of birds and more butterflies than on the entire continent of Africa. Explore lush jungles, stroll the shores of starlit beaches and view an abundance of exotic wildlife.  Sultry breezes, tropical gardens, and colorful birds are all part of the exuberant pura vida (“pure life”) of Costa Rica. Experience it for yourself, but don’t wait - space in paradise is limited!
