This includes your flight, but does not include passport and spending money while abroad.

FAQ:

Accommodations - Students will stay with carefully selected host families for the majority of the stay.
Language Requirement - there is no language requirement, but it is always good to know a little before you go!
Health and Safety - Costa Rica is one of the top locations for NMSU students abroad. Rare petty theft and stomach bugs are the biggest concerns of those going to Costa Rica. By going in a group, cases of incidences decrease.
