Thu, May 4, 2017, 8:00 AM – Fri, May 12, 2017, 5:00 PM CDT
This jungle survival course is not only a training event but an epic adventure into the deep jungles and coastal areas of Costa Rica. You will eat amazing jungle foods, experience the remote jungle wildlife and go on an epic learning adventure. Everything is planned out and ready for your arrival. All you need to bring is some basic jungle survival gear and you’re ready. Because of the flexibility we have with our Central American connections we can offer this course anytime as a private lesson or small group adventure with very competitive prices.
These jungles are one of the most bio diverse regions on the planet and offer unparalleled beauty! Waterfalls, never ending rivers, amazing fishing, incredible wildlife, beautiful beaches, and an unlimited amount of resources for learning bushcraft. This course is designed to start a person off on the basic skills of jungle survival and then build them up to an advanced level in a short amount of time.
You will train with the locals that have been living in the jungle for generations. The goal of this course is not to just teach you how to get back to civilization, but how to embrace the jungle and all the wonderful bounties it has to offer. We will teach you this by deep immersion training in the jungle and this entire class will be completely hands on in a real world survival training scenario.
Costa Rica has a lot to offer besides being a pristine jungle survival training area. After your course you can choose between many options and tours if you wish to take some time off. We can offer you canopy tours, white water rafting, sport fishing and much more.
