Who We Are
Hibiscus Travels: Learning Abroad Experiences is a Study Abroad Program Provider for Higher Learning Institutions throughout North America.
It was officially founded in 2013 with our volunteer program. It is based in Costa Rica, with headquarters in Texas.
Hibiscus Travels partners with educators from middle school, high school, community colleges, and universities to offer study abroad programs in conjunction with respective professors that allow students to learn outside of the classroom and expand their worldview.
Development Programs focus on the following areas: conservation, community service, medicine, empowerment, animal welfare, and specialized programs depending on needs and requirements of the participant. Hibiscus partners with professional organizations, both governmental and non-governmental that are specialized in their respective work.
Hibiscus has successfully organized thousands of abroad experiences for higher learning institutions.
We believe learning does not always happen within four walls and that experiential learning is extremely valuable to education and personal growth.
