I have been going on Broadreach for three summers now, and for a reason. Each trip I go on is a completely different experience, and I learn more useful, fun and extrordinary things about the world, different people, and even myself each time. The Costa Rica, Belize and Panama Adventure included all the amazing experiences I was expecting, and I would go back to the three countries in a nano-second. The group of kids brought together was unique, and we got along like we had known each other for at least three years, not three weeks. The instructors had it all together and were obviously very experienced, and besides them being the funniest, coolest and most relatable people to be lead by, they made the trip serious enough so that we learned new things every day. The amount of traveling on this trip is definitely substantial, but it's definitely a great experience to travel abroad and have to go through customs a lot. Besides, the traveling portions don't matter when you get to spend time side by side with barracudas, rays, reef sharks and turtles, sleep in a natural cavern, rappel down a 90 foot waterfall, swim across white water, launch into class four rapids in the Pacuare River, and learn to stand up on the waves of Panama. In three weeks, you learn tons about the ocean, the rainforest, the river, and the people that live in those environments. The Costa Rica, Belize, and Panama Adventure is full of incomparable and unique experiences that I doubt you can find anywhere else.
