Join the crew for this soccer intensive trip of a lifetime!
Although our itinerary is not finalized, you can get a good feel for the week using our projected itinerary, as follows:
Days 1-4: The trip starts by flying into San Jose, Costa Rica. We set up camp an hour away at the peaceful Villa Alta in Barranca, located on the western coast. Much of your stay here is soccer oriented and includes training at a nearby turf pitch, playing games against local teams, sand soccer, and small sided games. Besides playing a lot of soccer, you will interact with local youth players, enjoy local food, and participate in a service project benefiting the local community. Projects are need based and may vary but could include repairing homes, agricultural projects, or teaching soccer and/or English. We will also provide local players and schools with the soccer equipment they need to play, one of our main missions at One World Athletics!
Day 5: Our second destination of the trip will be Jaco Beach. Here campers can enjoy training in the sand, relaxing on the beach, and maybe even some surfing with world renowned Tortuga Surf School.
Day 6: Our final destination before returning to San Jose is La Fortuna! Baldi Hot Springs is the highlight of our one night stay at the base of Arenal.
Days 7-8: In San Jose, we will spend a half day exploring the capital city including Costa Rica's National Stadium and the National Craft Market. Afterwards, we will have a final training session on the artificial turf pitch next to our hotel. Hotel is located 15 minutes from the airport for a convenient transfer to begin the trip home the following day.
