I learned Spanish, how to make some Mexican foods, how to Latin dance, and a brand new and exciting culture!

The greatest benefits were experiencing the city life of Oaxaca and the beautiful natural landscape of Hierve El Agua and Puerto Escondido. There was a nice fusion of city and nature experience.
