- I Miss Sol Abroad!10/22/15
My time in Costa Rica with the friends I made and the outgoing, worldly instructors is something I look back on fondly. I keep myself from talking to some of the people on the trip only because it makes me sad I might not see them again. Through sol abroad,
I learned a lot about spanish, Costa Rican culture, and friendship. The activities organized by Sol are top-notch, especially for the price. Between cooking classes, rafting, (...), I looked forward to days spent with friends in town, at dinners, playing soccer, learning Spanish. I think this program has opened up my world view. Perhaps it's ironic to call a two-week-long-high-school-study-abroad-trip a watershed moment, but traveling to this new country felt like a stepping stone towards becoming more worldly; the Sol Abroad context inspired me to be confident and taught me how to succeed when traveling to other places around the world. I'm glad.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
