Here's a quote from EcoTeach:

Experience the Pura Vida of Costa Rica!

EcoTeach’s ecological and cultural expeditions are unlike any other.

Sure, you’ll have unforgettable adventures. You might encounter volcanoes, raft on rivers, trek through rainforests, fly on zip lines high above the canopy, and meet monkeys, sloths, and birds of every color. But you’ll also have rich cultural and environmental encounters: you may help protect endangered sea turtles and their hatchlings, accept the hospitality of a local farming family, and work with local environmentalists on projects to protect the delicate balance of some of the world’s richest ecologies.
