Travel Makes a Difference

EcoTeach is committed to educational travel.

Established by a teacher in 1994, EcoTeach has taken nearly 15,000 student and adult travelers on an educational tour to Costa Rica.  Our tours have always been focused on hands-on conservation work, authentic cultural exchange and real-world experiences.

The chance to make a difference in local communities

EcoTeach carefully selects locally-owned and operated projects focused on conservation, ecology and community. Each year, our travelers volunteer thousands of hours saving sea turtles, planting trees and conducting rainforest research. Our hands-on activities make long lasting impressions on the communities we visit and the participants themselves.

All-inclusive pricing

With EcoTeach, you know exactly what your trip will cost. Most everything is included: accommodations, meals, activity and entrance fees, private in-country transportation, and a great local guide!

Personalized educational tours

Have a special request for a destination or a project?   Need to meet special educational tour requirements?  We can make it happen. Visit our "Personalize a Trip" page to find out how to create your own tour.

We don’t mix or combine our groups

That means you get your own bus with your own guides so you can focus on the relationships and experience of your own group.

Smaller groups and more guides

We keep our group sizes small and have a higher ratio of guides to students – we can take better care of you that way.

Personal service

Our customer service is exceptional. Our staff works diligently to make every aspect of your trip pleasant and care-free, and we're available 24/7 to address any concerns.
