Overall Experience
I learned about a culture that we normally don't study here in the U.S. and I met so many interesting and amazing people not only from Spain, but all over the world. Definitely worthwhile! - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I gained a tremendous amount of historical background about the various cultural influences of the Iberian peninsula.

I gained/learned so much more than I could ever learn by sitting in a classroom. My heart was opened to the people of Costa Rica and my eyes were opened to the unfair and unjust world of cheap labor.
