Program Reviews:
Emilia Isabel Suarez, Summer 2016 Participant
UGA Costa Rica is an extraordinarily experience with a special connection to the community of San Luis. I could not recommend any trip higher for students interested in learning Spanish and Latin American culture.

Summer 2016 Participant
The staff was friendly, helpful, welcoming, and professional

Matthew Evan Meeks, Summer 2016 Participant
Future participants should be ready for a good deal of interaction with the local community and being put outside of their comfort zones. That being said, that interaction will be very rewarding.

I gained the confidence to speak Spanish which will allow me to one day become fluent. I truly believe that after this trip I will be able to carry on a conversation in Spanish and have the capabilities of being fluent.
