Riverstone School – March 13, 2012 

Riverstone School – March 13, 2012

March 16, 2012

Though we run scheduled trips throughout the year, we are also pleased to welcome many different groups to Costa Rica on custom tours. This week we have the 8th grade class from Riverstone School here exploring everything that Costa Rica has to offer and practicing their Spanish a little bit too. Yesterday they had the chance to go to Guayabo, an archeological site just outside Turrialba at the base of the Volcano, in the morning and then visit the orphanage they have been kind enough to donate to in the afternoon. Given the high energy level of 14 year olds, this turned out to be the perfect activity for them as they were able to give the orphans the attention and playtime they so crave. Part of the afternoon included horseback rides for the children as a special treat and the class was amazing at helping out and making sure each child got a turn. The experience turned out so well that the owner of the horses, a local man named Allan, has decided to continue these orphanage visits on his own time and allow the children to continue to learn about and ride the horses. We are extremely pleased to have been a part of this and can’t wait to see the glowing smiles on the kids’ faces when Allan comes back with the horses again. Thank you Riverstone School for partnering with Costa Rica Rios in this endeavor! There is nothing we love more than giving back to the local community.
