This exciting Wilderness and Travel Medicine CME Course combines two world-class adventures in one trip!

After an overnight stay in the capital of San Jose, we fly south to explore the world-famous Corcovado National Park and the Cano Island Biological Reserve.

Corcovado is a paradise of tropical wilderness and beaches, cataloged by the National Geographic Society as "one of the most biologically intense places on Earth!" It has truly spectacular wildlife, including many species of monkeys, crocodiles, exotic parrots, toucans, and an incredible diversity of species. Resident naturalists lead several hiking and boat excursions.

Cano Island has beautiful snorkeling and scuba. Exciting day trips to view pods of wild dolphins can also be arranged.

Our accommodations in Corcovado will be the spectacular La Paloma Lodge, regarded as one of the best eco-lodges in Costa Rica.

After leaving La Paloma, we travel up the west coast to the beautiful Savegre River Valley, where we stay at the Rafiki Jungle Lodge, which is patterned after deluxe Africa Wildlife Lodges. During our stay at Rafiki, enjoy hiking with a naturalist, horseback riding, bird and wildlife watching, or whitewater rafting on the exciting Savegre River.

Then, we travel to the idyllic coastal town of Manuel Antonio, where we stay at a beautiful hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean for our last two nights. You'll have plenty of time to explore the lovely beaches, or choose from a variety of multi-sport adventures.

The Wilderness Medicine CME lectures will take place every evening before dinner.
