All the activities we did were so much fun. It gave everybody a chance to experience everything Costa Rica has to offer in regards to its ecotourism.

Fadimata Maiga, Maymester 2016 Participant
Every accommodation was very clean, comfortable, and appropriate, given our constant travelling. I was impressed by the quality of every location in which we lived.

Ellen Jennifer Mahoney, Maymester 2016 Participant
No recomemendations, I thought that this program was very well organized and planned out.

I learned a lot about the importance of sustainability. My lifestyle will be different than it would have been before. I am more aware of our effects on the environment.
