Kevin Michael Tenny, Winter Break 2016 Participant
Ultimately, I enjoyed being able to learn about the vastness of the Costa Rican culture and being able to experience it hands-on.

Being able to go to museums and see the national parks were lovely since we got to learn more about the environment and history.
