Testimonies by Groups Visiting Costa Rica

Some remarks by Dr. Jeff Lehman from Otterbein College on the services received:
____________________________________________________________________________
 
 

“…. Services provided by Dr. Jimenez-Saa had provided us a first-hand, genuine, detailed experience of the tropics for students coming from the temperate US.  In our case, this kind of trips is not a tourist trip but a trip grounded in science….. “

 
 

“…. Our tropical ecology course was for upper-level science majors and added a strong hands-on aspect of the study of tropical ecology that cannot be acheived through tourist-style trips or solely academic studying….”

 
 

“ In a 12-day trip we covered the dry forest, premountian forest, cloud forest, and wet/humid forest (great diversity in short trip) and experienced life (ethnobotany) in the wet forest with the Bribri Indian community. Several specific principles of tropical ecology were covered.” 

 
 

“This experience adds depth and bread to the teaching of our tropical ecology course and using Humberto´s services removed the burden from the faculty member from making all the arrangements.”
