If you have ever snorkeled, you know you are in for a big treat during our trip to Costa Rica. For those of you who are going to do this for the first time - no worries. Snorkleing is easy and fun once you get the breathing thing down. I practiced in my pool before my first trip to get comfortable with my equipment. Equipment (snorkel, mask, and fins) will be provided but I plan on bringing my own snorkel and mask. "No fog" drops also are handy. If you are not the strongest swimmer, flotation devices will be available and there is no shame in wearing one. I've worked with several teachers last summer on my trip to Belize who were first time snorkelers and they all did a great job. Feel free to post questions about this activity.

What are we going to do on the trip?

This trip will be like none other. You will learning biology in the rain forest, on the slopes of a volcano, and in the ocean. You will see first hand the plight of the sea turtles and the manatees. You will also be able to see lots of unique fish as you snorkle in the Carribean.

Get ready with your journals and cameras so you can remember this trip forever!
