Costa Rica experience for my daughter

My daughter had nothing but good things to say about her experience in Costa Rica. She enjoyed the program, the country, her fellow classmates and her host family. She went without knowing anything but fortunately she enjoyed her group. From an administrative standpoint, the Sol Abroad staff was helpful and informative throughout the whole process. Being able to see the daily pictures on Facebook was great. It was something we checked on and looked forward to every day.

Great experience

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the program. I only wish she could have stayed longer. The extra-curricular activities were better than advertised, and I loved getting all the photos of her exploring Oaxaca. Her confidence and Spanish improved immensely.

Oaxaca 2016

My 15 year old daughter attended Sol Abroad in Oaxaca for 3 weeks. She entered the program not speaking a word of Spanish. By the end of the program she felt comfortable enough in the language and culture to negotiate taxi fares in Spanish. She loved the city of Oaxaca and all that it had to offer. She was housed with another student and two other girls were across the street. The four of them were at ease walking to and from the University campus as well as around Oaxaca when they had free time. Overall a wonderful experience to learn the language and culture.

Life changing experience

My daughter went to Oaxaca after her freshmen year in high school, and then to Atenas after her sophomore year in high school. We have been so happy with this program, that she is set to go to Spain next summer! I have been pleased with Sol Abroad every step of the way.

While I wouldn't have changed anything about the trips for my daughter, looking back...I would have probably sent her to Costa Rica the first time and Oaxaca the 2nd time. Costa Rica was more 'fun' experience, and Oaxaca was a more 'cultural' experience.

Fantastic experience - gap year is a great time to go!

My daughter went as a senior in high school. I was very apprehensive as she was, by far, the youngest person in her program. Not to worry, Janiva found exactly the right host mother and roommate for her. And Janiva made sure she was safe at all times. The structure of the program, with its emphasis on cultural experiences and travel within the country, was perfect! My daughter learned so much about other cultures and peoples that she could never have learned in a classroom. I would recommend this experience to any college student as well as mature high school students who are ready to see more of the world.
