Who We Are
Hibiscus Learning Abroad Experiences was officially founded in 2013 with our volunteer program. Prior to this, our founder independently coordinated large student trips for a multitude of university organizations.
Hibiscus was created to give travelers direct access to in-country staff who specializes in coordinating customized experiences for both individuals and groups.
Hibiscus operates throughout Costa Rica and has many valuable partnerships with both governmental and non-governmental organizations.
Hibiscus has successfully organized thousands of abroad experiences.
We believe learning does not always happen within four walls and that experiential learning is extremely valuable to higher education and personal growth.
