Costa Rica teams arrive in San Jose, Costa Rica for orientation and seminars in tropical medicine, taking vital signs, pharmacology, house clinic-community triage, clinic organization, medical Spanish seminars, as well as history of Costa Rica. Teams perform house clinics, community health surveys, village triage, and clinics in different areas and towns, based on local needs at the time of the trip. Teams then make their way back to San Jose, Costa Rica and depart home from there.


Most teams consist of four to twenty volunteers and are accompanied by ISL staff and licensed health professionals.

Volunteer teams to Costa Rica can be customized to include time in Panama or Nicaragua, providing a unique, dual country, comparative experience for groups of 10 or more. Contact info@ISLonline.org for more information.
