Great cultural experience in Puerto Rico!

10/10

If you are looking to engage with the Puerto Rican culture, learn Spanish and volunteer in a local community, this program is a great choice! Luis, the director of the program, coordinated everything for me (pickup, hostel, Spanish classes) and I learned a lot from him about Puerto Rican culture and history. He even showed me around Old San Juan. In addition, helping at the community center is a great way to learn more about sustainable development and the local culture of the town.
