Disclosure: Please note the winter beach adventure in Costa Rica is a unique vacation experience. Unlike most kosher programs, which are at a hotel and are centered on food and speakers, we have developed a program which is unique to Costa Rica and its wild, natural surroundings.

We asks guest to take this into consideration when choosing this program. CRKA has years of experience running kosher travel programs. Our staff is committed to giving you an exceptional and truly enjoyable vacation.
