Travel to Turrialba and Sarapiqui regions and select from a carefully curated list of activities that will include hiking, rafting, nature walks, birdwatching, mountain biking, canyoning, and cultural immersion experiences. 

Visit two universities in Costa Rica and meet with many local outdoor recreation and tourism providers.

Immerse yourself in a foreign context to make new connections and think differently about your personal and professional journey. 

This event will offer many engaging experiences across two of Costa Rica’s main outdoor recreation destinations. Five full days of adventure, networking, and professional and personal exploration will be topped off with Costa Rica’s International Outdoor Recreation Summit in the nation’s capital, San Jose. 

Why Is This Happening?

The 2023 Global University Experience seeks to cultivate and facilitate a collaborative working environment for AORE professionals with an emphasis on engaging organizational teams in professional networking, program evaluation, organizational development, and strategic planning.

Costa Rica was selected as an opportune setting to learn about outdoor recreation given the rich history of adventure travel, tourism, and environmental stewardship, along with its ongoing challenges in outdoor etiquette, valuing personal recreation, and quality of life among outdoor professionals. In this ideal setting to indulge in diverse outdoor activities, we have designed the event to encourage knowledge and skills exchange with the context of developing participants’ understanding of the field and ability to excel in their careers.
