Blue Zone Trips 

Did you know that Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula is considered one of the world famous Blue Zones?  Author, Dan Buettner coined the phrase in his bestselling book, “The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from People Who’ve Lived the Longest”.  Come to Costa Rica and find out the secrets that help lead to happiness and longevity.  


Our most popular trip is a full-on immersion trip and student groups love it.  The students experience the real Costa Rica by staying in homestays, learning survival Spanish, and getting an inside look at one of the happiest cultures on Earth.  We also mix in fun activities like surfing, ranch trips, cooking classes and dancing.  We learn about homeopathic medicines used in the area and hear first hand accounts of the lives of Costa Ricans who have enjoyed their lives on the Nicoya Peninsula.


*Of course, we specialize in custom designed trips so we work with you to plan the exact type of trip you have in mind, offering our expert advise and recommendations.  Let us know how much immersion you’re looking for and we can tailor the trip to your ideals.  We can offer more or less Spanish classes, homestay time, and free time just as some examples of the flexibility of the program design.

Please contact us for your trip quote, .  Prices start at $1,500 per person for a one-week trip with double occupancy in hotels and double or triple occupancy at the homestays.   As always, an instructor travels for free for every 10 students that come on the trip.  The instructor just covers their airfare and Viva Adventures will take care of the rest.
