International Mission Trip to Costa Rica

Lush rainforests, beautiful beaches, and mountain volcanoes make Costa Rica a popular tourist destination. With much to explore, Costa Rica is an eco-adventurer’s dream come true! But there is often a hidden side of the country that regular tourists don’t get to see. From shanty towns of Nicaraguan refugees in the bigger cities to small indigenous communities deep in the mountains that are still considered unreached people groups, there is much more to Costa Rica than what meets the average tourist’s eye. Along the Pacific coast there is a small community called Nosara. Here, the residents of this community have some of the most breathtaking views in the whole country, but live in heartbreaking conditions. These precious people, with no other option for housing, have built homes from scraps they could find in the garbage dump or on construction sites.
