The Green Season Discounts for 2017
During this time we would like to share our green season discount that is starting August 14th through December 15th. Discounts of 10% are based on the Standard or Intensive language programs only. Weekly housing on campus in Dominical will be discounted to $100.00 per week for a private room. If you have friends and family that are interested in coming down during the green season, they can receive an additional discount!

Green Season Facts
The green season is also called the wet season, or Costa Rican winter, and lasts from May through November. Temperatures are comfortable, averaging in the 70’s in the Central Valley and 80’s on the coast. The term “green” season perfectly summarizes the country’s lush countryside during this time of year. Green season months are also the best for some of the country’s top activities, including turtle watching in Tortuguero, surfing in the Pacific, whitewater rafting, and whale watching along the Osa Peninsula.
4 Reasons to Attend AEC in the Green Season
#1 No Crowds
While summer vacationers flood the country from June to July, the rest of the green season sees a lull and diminished crowds. At Rainforest Adventures’ Atlantic park, less than an hour from San Jose and on the border of Braulio Carrillo National Park, that could mean zipping through the forest like you own the place.
#2 THE RAIN BRINGS AN EXPLOSION OF LIFE!
Impossible as it seems, the green season is proof that Costa Rica can be even more lush, abundant, and, well, green. Frequent rains power blooming fruits and flowers, which draw more birds and butterflies, like the blue morpho. Watch it unfold when you wander the new hummingbird and orchid gardens at Rainforest Adventures.
#3 EPIC WHITEWATER RAFTING
More rain not only makes white water rafting possible, it often stirs up Costa Rica’s biggest, baddest, and most furious rapids. Join outfitter Explornatura, for a paddle—and heart-thumping thrills—down the Pacuare River, which can dish up class IV rapids in green season.
#4 AWESOME HOTEL DEALS
Hotels drop their rates significantly in green season, which runs from May to mid-December, charging about 30 percent less than during the drier high season. In August, rates dip to their lowest, and are discounted as much as 50 percent.
