Giving Back to the Community

While the tourism thrives in Costa Rica, too often rural schools are left behind without basic needs.

Parcelas Santa Maria School 

in Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, Costa Rica 

This is the School of Parcelas Santa Maria in the rural parts of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, where Native's Way does a majority of our tours.  

The classroom holds grades 1-6, there are bathrooms, a kitchen, and a small office/storage room.  The closest upper level school is 45 minutes away, and there is no transportation provided.  The school has recently gotten electricity, but there are no computers, no television, internet, and hardly any materials aside from pencils and paper.  There are no classes for art, music, science, gym, or English.  School hours are from 7 AM to 11 AM Monday through Thursday, and there is only one teacher, who often cancels school.

Most drop out after the '6th grade' due to lack of transportation to Liberia where the nearest schools are that have more resources.
