Awesome

10/10

My time is Costa Rica was fantastic. The social scene was phenomenal, and my host Family was wonderful. The school itself was quite nice and the campus was beautiful. The only problem I had was the staff at the University itself. It was mildly frustrating to deal with them. Adelante was fantastic and were very helpful and cooperative. They will work around your schedule. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to study abroad.

I really enjoyed my time in Costa Rica. I got a chance to emerge into a new lifestyle and culture while going to school. This is something that I highly reccommend to just about anyone.

Pura Vida!

10/10

The reason I gave a lower rating for safety is simply because everyone warned me not to go out alone at night and be careful during the day. As long as you move in groups and aren't completely ignorant to the fact that you're in another country (don't walk around with your ipod in your hand and your cell phone in your back pocket) you should be fine. I didn't hear of any in my program having any problems. GO on the excursions too! You won't regret it. Adelante Abroad was really helpful, they did everything in their power to make this happen for me!

How can this program be improved?

There were too many Americans. I was the only non-American. A more diverse group would really have helped my cultural experience be more related to the country that I was visiting. It was really hard NOT to speak English which impeded my learning.

Response from Adelante Abroad

Thank you, K. for the 100% grade and the shout out about the truly amazing excursions offered in the Adelante Abroad Costa Rica programs! Yes, we definitely do overstate the safety concerns – rather have you be over cautious than under during your short time abroad.
