BASEBALL TEAM TRIPS

COSTA RICA

Costa Rica is unique among its Central American neighbors with baseball being more of a niche sport rather than a national pastime. Still, the National Team is a formidable opponent and Estadio Escarre provides a minor league caliber stadium. Baseball Team Trips to Costa Rica have the option of crossing the border into southern Nicaragua for additional competition or experiencing the game in one of Costa Rica's more rural communities.

Excursions

Excursions include zip-lining through the rain-forest, white-water rafting, relaxing in the natural hot springs at the base of Arenal Volcano and visiting world-class beaches on the Pacific Coast!

Service-Learning

Baseball is growing in Costa Rica and there are some outstanding organizations driving the effort. Your team will work with local baseball federations and non-profits to provide clinics for local youth with an emphasis on fundamentals.

Trip Details

Trip length can range from 6-10 days and include 2-4 games. We offer a number of different hotel packages for groups ranging from 3-star accommodations to 4 and 5 star resorts.
