Careers at Outward Bound Costa Rica

Be. Out. There. Inspiring a lifetime of leadership, growth, and a commitment to serve through adventure-based learning.

Our students get the chance to hike in the rain and cloud forests while living with local host families, learning Costa Rican culture, and working side by side with the local community as they provide much needed assistance. Service projects range in length and focus on people, construction, marine biology and ecological issues. Students surf in our world-renowned warm water breaks, whitewater raft and kayak on our class III and IV rivers and experience the beauty of the Panama coral reef as they earn their Scuba Certification in Bocas del Toro.

The inspiration behind Outward Bound came from the German-born educator Kurt Hahn, who created the first Outward Bound School in 1941 in Aberdovey, Wales. Outward Bound is now present in over 30 countries where it offers a life-changing journey to thousands of students every year. Outward Bound Costa Rica has been operating in Central America for 20 years.
