Lipscomb in Costa Rica

Costa Rica has it all: tropical climate, diverse landscapes, friendly people, and adventure around every corner.

It is the top destination in Latin America for US students studying abroad, and it's easy to see why. Making up only 0.03% of the earth’s surface, Costa Rica hosts over 5% of the world’s biodiversity. You’ll be surprised by the sheer variety of landscapes that the country offers—from coasts on both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to cloud forests and volcanoes. 

Lipscomb’s study abroad program is based in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, which is home to about 70% of the local population. This bustling region of Costa Rica provides easy access to museums, modern cultural attractions, vibrant shopping centers and restaurants, as well as numerous national parks and reserves.
