What elements of the program did you find the most rewarding?
Program Testimonials
The most rewarding part of this program was discovering I could fly to a foreign country, meet totally new people, live in some interesting conditions, do intense hikes and still have the best experience of my life. It's nice to know that I'm capable of doing a lot.

The teaching staff was very helpful and fun to be around. The main professor is one of the coolest people I know and some of the TA's will be lifelong friends.

Health Services/Accessibility
Program Testimonials
I never actually knew where the clinic was but my teachers were very good at first aid and I never felt worried about my health there, they always had a plan if we got hurt or sick.

City Life
Program Testimonials
Monteverde is a very small, very friendly town. After a week or two of living there people began to recognize us and would invite us out and say hi to us on the streets.
