I spend a semester in Costa Rica with Sol Education and I am now preparing to spend another semester through Sol's program in Oaxaca, Mexico. This program is extremely well put together and filled with excursions and support networks for people who are excited to travel to a new country and learn Spanish. I found that the opportunities to share experiences with other Solmates and to meet locals were endless. One of the problems with being abroad can be too much down time which leads to isolation, but that was never a problem. With Sol, you can be as involved and immersed as you want to be.

This program was extremely well organized and had lots of great local connections. My time in Argentina was amazing and it was definitely one of the best decisions of my life. I would definitely recommend this program to any students interested in study abroad in South America.

This was, hands-down, the best decision I've ever made! I learned so much and got so much out of this experience! The best part of this trip was the people I got to meet- from the program directors to the students to my host family- they were all so wonderful and helped me with everything, making this one of the best experiences I've ever had. It's definitely worth the money and time, but it's very challenge by choice. Classes are not the typical strenuous summer classes. They're much more relaxed, but are a really easy way to learn and/or brush up on concepts- but they are not with Spanish speakers, so it's pretty americanized. I learned and practiced with my host family much more than I did in class. the program itself its amazing! I've never felt more at home than I did with the people who were on this trip with me. I wish I could have stayed longer (or indefinitely).

Studying abroad in Costa Rica through SOL was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life! The support I received leading up to, throughout, and prior to studying abroad was incredible. The directors, Janiva and Jessenia, are so accommodating, helpful, and caring toward each and every student in the program. They helped us to see beyond the tourist attractions in order to learn about all of the rich culture and interact with locals. They did a wonderful job of placing us with host families as well as roommates. My host family was amazing! My host mom helped my roommate and I to learn as much Spanish as we could, and she was so patient! She even took us to her hometown and introduced us to her whole family. The food was superb. Not a complaint there! The excursions were all so comprehensive and enriching! My favorite excursion was when we went to a sustainable living community for a weekend. It was such an enlightening and rewarding experience! I learned so much about Costa Rica, the world, and myself through this program. I am so lucky to have found SOL!

I went to Costa Rica seeking adventure and found it in many more places than I anticipated. Not only did I get to experience the natural beauty the country offers through excursions provided by Sol and personal travel, but I fell in love with the culture. My host family provided me with support, the most delicious food, and eventually became a second family. My directors were more than helpful and were my most trusted teachers. Other students on my program became my closest friends. Costa Rica has more to offer than just volcanoes and gorgeous beaches - and Sol will teach you how to be more than a tourist: how to be a traveler.
