HOSPITALITY & TOURISM INTERNSHIPS IN COSTA RICA

Since the late 1980’s, Costa Rica has become a large eco-tourism destination because of its biodiversity, national parks, Pacific and Caribbean coasts, and top-rated hotels. From volcanoes to beaches, waterfalls, mountains and rainforests, there’s no shortage of places to see when visiting Costa Rica. On average, more than 2 million travelers visit the country each year.

Costa Rica is a top travel destination for both international and domestic tourism and continues to increase each year. Though a small country, Costa Rica is rapidly becoming more competitive in the travel and tourism industry by emphasizing its adventure and eco-tours. International interns in Costa Rica get hands-on experience in one of the more developed countries of Central America, where the tourism industry is comparable to those of Europe and North America. As an intern, you work in the capital city of San Jose, where business thrives as the hub for international travel. Internship placements are based on your professional interests and may include boutique hotels, travelers’ hostels, tour agencies, or restaurants. International interns contribute directly to business development through client outreach, marketing, social media management, public relations, sales, and guest services.
