Overall Experience
It was definitely worthwhile! I gained a new perspective and lots of cultural learning - non university student View Entire Review
I learn the different aspects of their culture. Through riding horses and the many physical activities and culturally eating and living in a very Argentinian household I learned not only the great aspect of their culture, but a new perspective that I would not be able to understand from the outside looking in - Villanova University View Entire Review
While I was abroad I learned that you should not live in fear because that does not change anything, it just reduces the amount of fun that you have. Yes, it was worthwhile because I enjoyed every minute of the whole program. - Ewing Marion Kauffman School View Entire Review

About

Experience the natural beauty of Argentina through a month of cultural immersion, outdoor activities, and community service. Begin your Experiment in Argentina’s capital, where your group will explore the city’s art galleries, theaters, and boulevards and begin practicing your Spanish. Sail by catamaran to the city’s surrounding islands to learn about the region’s ecology and biosystems. From Buenos Aires, travel to colonial Salta La Linda, capital of the Salta province, on Argentina’s northern frontier, where you will spend two weeks sharing day-to-day life with an Argentine host family. During this period, work on a community service project, such as volunteering at a center for children with developmental disabilities or helping renovate an orphanage or kindergarten. Participate in Spanish language classes with other members of your group and learn about local gaucho culture. Go white-water rafting or hike to a traditional ranch, where you will learn how to rope cattle. Continue on to the small town of Chicoana, just south of the city of Salta, where you will assist in service activities such as painting or landscaping. Then, embark on a week of outdoor exploration with your group and leaders. Go horseback riding, camp out on a large ranch, and enjoy traditional barbecue. Travel through the mountains to the city of Cafayate, stopping at famous rock formations. In Cafayate, take a bike tour of the city and hike the beautiful surrounding areas. Return to Buenos Aires for a final day of exploration and reflection.
