Our second week in paradise was full of laughs, fun and LOTS of Costa Rican culture!

Hiking, dancing, volunteering, ziplining, you name it, we did it. Everyone participated and we were beyond impressed with the willingness of all of our students to soak in the Costa Rican culture, speak Spanish and step out of their comfort zone to truly embrace this once in a lifetime experience. As a group, we have bonded, but as individuals, we have noticeably grown.

At the end of the week our Month students were sad to say goodbye to our friends from summer 1 but looked forward to meeting new friends who arrived for summer 2 in Flamingo!!!
