Pura Vida in Costa Rica

Such a beautiful country and such a great way to see it. My time there exceeded my expectations and provided me with a cultural experience that one can't get as a tourist. I felt like a contributing member of society there and living with a host family only made it better. Everything went smoothly, right from my first email inquiry, to booking the trip, to arriving and being met at the airport, being welcomed by my host family with open arms and oriented to the city and program. I was able to improve my spanish skills the first week and then volunteered at a children's education program for the next three weeks. The times weren't demanding and I was able to explore San Jose in the afternoons, and the country on the weekends. Assistance with booking travel and accommodations for weekend travel was provided. It was an experience I won't forget and will definitely be doing something similar in future.
