We found this program on the Internet without any friend's recommendations so were nervous. But the second we met with Brent and learned about all of his experience and his program team we were excited and at ease. He also connected us with other families who had sent their kids on various programs and we heard great things. He explained that once our daughter got to Costa Rica our primary contact would be Catalina which it was and she was GREAT. So we felt comfortable.
From our daughter's point of view, she loved Catalina, her family, made friends. The mother's cooking was delicious. The outings were fantastic and the opportunity to speak Spanish all the time was great. This program is exactly what they say it is. Excellent. Down to earth. Great people running it.
