Barcelona ACA Summer

My experience with ACA in Barcelona was like no other! From the time we met at JFK for our group flight to the day we took the flight back home, I had the best time. Every minute was packed with activities and adventures. I met so many people from all over and will remain friends with them forever. The classes were fun and exciting. We went on a lot of field trips and got to experience real Spanish culture. The hotel was super nice and in an awesome location. I had so much fun on my trip that I went to Florence the next summer with ACA and had an even better time! The staff made both trips so fun and were very organized. I felt very safe at all times.
