What is the smallest size group that can come?
We recommend groups of at least 15, we can accommodate smaller groups but the price per person may be adjusted.
Do you have to be vaccinated to enter Costa Rica?
No, there are no longer any regulations about vaccines or testing.
How much does it cost to come down on a trip?
There may be variables that affect the price but typically we charge $110 a person per night. This cost includes a planned itinerary, transportation, lodging, meals and one adventure excursion. Some groups want to do two excursions (by excursions we mean traveling to the hot springs, the beach, a national park, going zip lining, or on a coffee tour, etc.) and if so, the cost is adjusted for the extra travel.
Will students be able to rent snorkel equipment on site or should they bring their own?
It would be better if you brought your own snorkeling equipment because there would be a possibility that the location would not have enough for your group.
If a couple is interested in going can they have a private room or would they have to bunk with other students?
Most of the places we will be staying have availability for private rooms for couples.
Atlas Travel and Study Abroad was started by Andy Gordley in 2021 as a family business. Andy has been a missionary for over twenty years and during the pandemic saw an opportunity to merge his love for serving God with a sustainable overseas business that can support its own ministry ventures, boost the Costa Rican economy and give back to the community by hiring locals and funding projects. Currently Atlas has hired four locals and is sponsoring one child to go to a private Christian school!
