Ski Program in Argentina

Great program. Teen oriented. Safe. Educational. Super fun. Boys did both a Spanish emersion in Buenos Aires and ski program in Pantagonia. Amazing mentors and group leaders. My two fifteen year olds had a wonderful time. They have met other kids from all over the world. Kevin, their program director, was dependable, enthusiastic, and took great care of them. Highly recommend! We are considering using Arcos again, either for the same program or something similar but in another country in South America. Working with Brent, programs admin, was great. He is quick to respond, solve issues, and supportive.

I had a lot of fun and made many friends. Skiing was so awesome. I would recommend this program to anyone regardless of their background. Meeting new people in the city was also very interesting. I made several new friends and hung out with them on occasion. This program also helped my develop my Spanish language.

Arcos Argentina

I went to Argentina for 4 weeks through the Arcos journey abroad program. For two of the weeks, I attended a school, and for the other two weeks, I volunteered at a retirement home. Some of the activities I do include attending a tango show, going to various museums, and of course, doing all the most common popular activities. All of these activities were done with a group of other students my age. I also stayed in an apartment with another family, the housing experience was very comfortable and accomidating

Buenos Aires spanish immersion high school

This program was a unique experience. I don’t think most people in North America are aware of the beauty of Argentina. I’d recommend taking the Spanish immersion program in Buenos Aires. The architecture is beautiful and the food is delicious. The Spanish classes are really interesting and personal. We were only 4 in our class which makes for a fast learning process. My only issue with this trip was how I was treated by my house mom. It felt like she didn’t want us there and that she was hosting only to make money. Other people in my group lived a similar experience.

  • Great Spanish classes
  • Good food
  • Interesting tours
  • House families don’t care about you

Kevin is cool and epic

Argentina was a great learning experience for Spanish and a lot of fun. Being able to speak Spanish with everyone there accelerated my learning speed. Skiing was also very fun, and all the activities we did during both programs were fun and valuable. The guide was knowledgeable and fun to be around. The activities could have been better fitted to our age group, as some were boring. The flight arrangements were good and worked out well. The guide was very good at helping us navigate and get through the airport and at arranging travel.

Love the crew and kevinnn - Jasper

Fun crew, at first was a little weird getting to know the people cause I haven’t met people from these specific areas but we all fell right into place thanks to Kevin! I don’t think I would do anything differently besides maybe helping with chores a little more I was kinda lazy most the time, I really how nice Kevin was and how much he could relate and fit in with such a rowdy teenage crew, and Kevin if your reading this, mi español es mejor día por día, aprendo mucho slang y otras cosas, suerte con vida amigooooo!
