Gap Year was Awesome!

I did a gap year with Maximo where I stayed here for 6 months and did pretty much EVERYTHING they had to offer including Spanish classes and TEFL certification. I had a blast! My host family was super nice and accommodating. The staff was very helpful and FLEXIBLE. They allowed me to change activities in my gap year so I could have the best experience possible. Overall, I think my gap year was a great value and I got everything i wanted out of it .

Yes, I recommend this program
