My trip to Costa Rica was fantastic. It was an absolutely beautiful place with the most amazing people.

I travelled to Miami, Florida to meet up with with all the other students in our group. Sure, it was awkward for the first day or two, but by the end of the trip, we were all sobbing our eyes out when it was time to leave. I talk to these guys often, so our friendship didn’t break when the trip was over. We even plan to meet up sometime soon! The staff was also fantastic, they were there for the students and to make the trip overall more enjoyable. My two leaders, kept us laughing, together and healthy through everything. I truly miss them.

However, the community service aspect was phenomenal. The people opened their homes to us, without hesitation, cooked for us, cleaned for us while we worked. Throughout this, we became super connected to the village and their way of life. We experienced their culture firsthand and became family. I now have a village in the mountains of Costa Rica, that I will have never forget.

Fantastic trip. Thank you Putney.
