There was a great balance between business visits and time to experience the culture of Costa Rica.
It was my first time out of the country and I just loved everything about this trip! From the food to the wonderful people we met. My overall favorite part of this trip was the hot springs it was such a beautiful setting spent with wonderful people!
I definitely learned a lot by the Informational Interviews with the person I made contact with, and also alumni and contacts that the class had made the year before. It was very cool to hear about their experiences and careers. I also loved bonding as a class, together we learned a lot by experiencing things together!
