I have been to Costa Rica twice on extended vacations. It is Hawaii on a budget. You get big bang for your buck! The people are so friendly, mosst speak English and the food is outstanding. Their economy is stable and there is something for everyone. I toured the whole country with a private driver so I ate at the "locals hangouts". Make sure you sample the fruit juices. Food was cooked over an open grill using coffee wood so the flavoring was unique and delicious! I fell asleep at night listening to Howler monkeys booming. The beaches are pristine and the mountains are gorgeous! I was amazed at how many people retrieved surf boards from the plane when we debarked. I met people from all over the world and the accomadations ranged from 5 star to simple cottage type rooms. I did not enter the contest as there is no way I could make the trip anymore but I envy anyone that gets to go!

Looking forward to visiting with the farmers who produce the rich & creamy EARTH University bananas & learn how their innovative growing methods are helping to save our planet’s precious resources as well as experience first-hand, how EARTH University is preparing young students to become tomorrow’s leaders in sustainable agriculture, responsible business and community development. Not to mention exploring vibrant Costa Rica, relax on the majestic beaches of Puerto Viejo, sample local cuisine and cruise along the island’s southern coast in search of dolphins.

I have always been supportive of and interested in sustainable organic farms, and most importantly in a university which prepares people including myself to become leaders in this field. Also, I have always wanted to visit Costa Rica and to see the natural beauty of the country. It has been my lifelong dream to start a organic farm. I am therefore very much interested in all aspects of this trip. I hope I am one of the finalists.

Would love to win a trip to Costa Rica and experience the culture. Have never been and think it would be a wonderful experience and also to taste the local cuisine. We are a family of gluten free diets and do all of our shopping at Whole Foods. I hope that I am the lucky one.

Costa Rica is one of the few countries in the world without a standing army! Bordered by two oceans, Costa Rica is truly outstanding! It is the country to visit for learning about sustainable agriculture.
