This blog is designed to share campus news and happenings with our friends, family, and past and future guests from the perspective of current UGA Costa Rica staff and interns. We hope that sharing our experiences here will help to draw a more complete vision of what daily life entails on campus and in the surrounding community of San Luis de Monteverde, Costa Rica.
As a brief introduction, UGA Costa Rica formed in 2002 as an official international residential campus of the University of Georgia. The campus, and the associated Ecolodge San Luis, have provided an inspiring environment for student groups and tourists to experience the stunning landscape and hospitable culture of Costa Rica.
Whether you’ve already had contact with our campus or are looking to visit us in the future, we hope that this blog will adequately convey the significance of our facility and the passion with which we pursue a sustainable future as an ecolodge, campus and research station.
