Rice, Beans, & Plantains

I had a lot of fun. The activities were well-organized, and the group was cool. My host family was actually wonderful, too. The only problem was I had few ideas on how to spend my free time. Still great.

How can this program be improved?
More stuff to do in free time, or more activities.

Costa Rica

The excursion to Costa Rica was a very eye-opening experiance that is a once and a life time opportunity. It humbles you because the things that you take for granted every day like hot showers are not available every time of the day. The trip changes your life and it opens your eyes to a new way of living and a new culture that teaches you life lessons and betterment of character.

Sol Abroad Made Me Passionate

There is nothing to complain about when I think of my experience in Costa Rica during the Sol Abroad immersion program. Those three weeks helped me put what I had been learning in the classroom at school for three years into practice. It helped me realize how much I truly love speaking and learning Spanish as well as Latin American culture and traveling. The experience gave me new friends and a more intense passion for what I already love. If you are looking for an experience to help you mature, gain knowledge and friends, and overall just have a good time, Sol Abroad is the trip for you. I wish I could have stayed in Costa Rica forever!

How can this program be improved?
I would maybe integrate more community service because even though we did paint an elementary school, it did not feel as meaningful as it could have been. I wish we could have done more.
Yes, I recommend this program
