Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I am going on this trip 10/10/15. Does anyone have any advise or suggestions as to anything special to bring?
Brenda OBrien Jul 07, 2015 at 08:23 PM

Nancy,
Brenda OBrien Jul 07, 2015 at 08:26 PM

Nancy, I would suggest bringing light rain gear. In the evenings it was a bit chilly, so a couple of sweaters are fine.A must is camera, not a cellphone one. the sights are amazing!


Brenda OBrien Jun 28, 2015 at 07:02 PM

Hi,
went on the taste of Costa Rica trip in 2013.
What an Adventure!, the Country is Beautiful!,

David & Dora Rice have registered for the 13 Feb 2016 program. I'm sure this is early to be posting but am excited to be going to Costa Rica! This is our first RS program though my mother went on several programs and had a great time. We are from Roswell, GA.


Christy OBrien Apr 06, 2015 at 06:24 PM

Anyone going on this trip leaving July 2? I hope to meet new people and hope it does not get canceled! What is the minimum # of people?


Kathy Harris Feb 24, 2015 at 09:55 PM

Kathy & John Harris will be on the March 14th trip to Costa Rica, our 16th Road Scholar program. We're looking forward to a wonderful experience and meeting a new group of friends.
Mary Riewe Mar 01, 2015 at 06:15 PM

My husband Mike and I are on the 3/14 trip. we are combining it with the 3/5 3 Jewels in Paradise trip. This will be our first time with Road Scholar. we're from Riverside, CA
Kathy Harris Mar 01, 2015 at 07:53 PM

Hello Mary & Mike. I look forward to meeting you. Our friends Mary & John from Columbia, MD, will be on your trip beginning 3/5. Also, Riverside, CA, must be VERY different from when I spent the summer there when I was 13 in 1955, the year Disneyland opened.


David Boothby Feb 07, 2015 at 10:12 AM

Heading out on Mar 14; first-timers from Nashua New Hampshire.
