Our educational and adventure tours
Celeste Newcomb, MBA; Department of Health Policy and Administration
Rainforest and Reef helped us design a state of the art health care program, helping us gain access to hospitals and clinics in Costa Rica. For five years in a row, Rainforest and Reef has delivered a well-run program.
Jacqueline S. McLaughlin, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biology
CHANCE (Connecting Humans and Nature through Conservation Experiences) has worked with Rainforest and Reef for nearly fifteen years to create its unique field courses. I proudly endorse Rainforest and Reef Costa Rica for academic field course programming in Costa Rica and Panama.
Hamish Duthie, Emeritus Professor of Biology
I have led introductory field courses in tropical biology in Costa Rica for many years. Itineraries were organized by Rainforest and Reef Costa Rica following consultation with myself, and generally included visits to different natural sites or biological reserves. Rainforest and Reef Costa Rica arranged accommodation, meals, travel by Coaster minibus and the services of a guide/naturalist. Planning was always exemplary, and the field courses ran smoothly; rates were very competitive.
Professor Ralph Smith, Biology Department
Rainforest and Reef has for many years provided all the in-country arrangements for the field course in Neotropical Ecology that I offer through the University of Waterloo. Our groups of 19-20 individuals have been well cared-for, and have received excellent guiding and transportation in a wide variety of locations in Costa Rica.
