Zachary Anderson Garrett, Summer 2016 Participant
"This experience completely redefined my views on culture, and allowed me to immerse myself in the Costa Rican way of life - ¡Pura Vida!"

Summer 2017 Participant
Bring hiking boots! They keep your feet dry in all the rain. Water PROOF jackets are a must. Water resistant is not enough when walking to homestays in the rain. It went through my water resistant jacket and drenched my shirt. It gets really dark so a flashlight or headlight is also a must. Pack plenty of pants in case they get wet or muddy.

"this trip taught me so much about myself, things that will serve me for the rest of my life"

It gave me more perspective on how people all around the world are very similar, and that will go into the classroom with me as a learn about my students.
