This was one of the best experiences of my life. The community was very welcoming and was located in a very scenic area thus it was always a treat to wake up and look out the window to enjoy the view. My favourite workshop that we did was a sports day twice a week with the elementary school kids. It was a fun way to get to know the children in the community and also teach them new sports such as California kick ball. I also enjoyed the English classes that we hosted because by teaching the students English my Spanish also got better. The main difficulty I encountered was the fact that I knew no Spanish whatsoever when I came to Costa Rica, therefore a lot of body language was used initially. However, I slowly picked up on it and after about a week or two it was no longer an issue.
