Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was an amazing experience. As expected it was physically tough but worth every drop of sweat and mud (no blood fortunately). For me personally, I found the heat hard to adjust to. I expected us to benefit from the shade of the rainforest more than we did and I guess going from a Scottish winter to an equatorial country didn't help. Having said that it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it harder work. We were also lucky because all 13 of us got on very well and it was a good mix of people. A special mention has to go to the guides and Danny in particular. I remember when we did the Cycling in the Andes that the guides were good but Danny was excellent. As well as being extraordinarily fit and knowledgeable about adventure stuff he was passionate about Costa Rica, it's environment and future. He had a great sense of humour and as if all that weren't enough he and his team were superb cooks. Although this wasn't everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday I came home envigorated and motivated with stacks of energy - apart from having to negotiate Terminal 5 on it's second day of chaos! I've already been on your website looking for the next potential challenge, if only work didn't get in the way.

Community Project Travel

>> do something good | do something extraordinary

An adventure holiday has the power to change you, and conversely you can effect change in the places you visit.  Since 2005, travelers from across the globe have been making tangible change in underprivileged communities by partaking in our Community Project Travel (CPT) trips. Working along-side volunteers from the host communities, travelers complete grass-root construction projects that are funded by the World Expeditions Foundation.

World Expeditions is committed to assisting underprivileged communities around the world, that receive little or no government support and coupled with dire economic predicament are in need of assistance. After consultation with the heads of these communities we have identified a number of projects in each community that we aim to complete over the course of time. These projects are completed over 2-10 days and often form part of an adventure itinerary.

2016/17 Community Travel Project includes:
