    "SOL was recommended to Tara by her professors at Winona State University. I was impressed with how thorough and organized the program was before and during the program. Even though I was excited for Tara to return home after 4 months in Costa Rica (Winter break and Spring Semester 2016), there was part of me that felt sad for her that she had to return so soon. I know that her experience was life changing and that part of her will always remain in Costa Rica. Tara had an amazing host family. I would highly recommend them to anyone traveling to Heredia for study abroad. I never had to worry because I knew that Tara had her host family and program directors as resources during her entire time in Costa Rica. Additionally the weekend excursions planned by SOL were opportunities of a lifetime. Thanks for providing a wonderful international learning experience for our daughter. I would highly recommend SOL and specifically Heredia to anyone looking for a travel abroad program. " View Less

    "Just a note to once again thank you for all the little trips you guys have taken the kids on. The ocean, the hot springs, and the ruins just to name a few. Alyssa has had a wonderful time. It has been a great experience for her. She loves the people, their lifestyles, their food, and the most amazing host mom, Ruth for preparing three square meals a day. I think Alyssa would be perfectly fine to move and live there. Thank you for making this such a memorable time in their lives. She has had such an amazing time and a wonderful learning curve. Alyssa has matured even more while she's been there. She has always been mature for her age and being the only child she has taken advantage of spreading her wings. She has fallen in love with Mexico. Ruth has been an amazingly wonderful host. I can't begin to thank her enough for opening her home, her life, and her heart to Alyssa and Casey. We appreciate her love, concern and her loving our girls during their stay. Thanks is not nearly enough praise to express my gratitude to Ruth. Not once gave I worried or sat around wringing my hands in fear of what might happen or could happen. I have been totally at peace with Alyssa being there. Please share this with Mama Ruth. Much love and gratitude...thanks for loving on our girls and taking such good care of them. Vaya con Dios" View Less

Definitely worth the money since she would have been miserable in a class here. Foreign languages are not easy for here so this was sooooo much more enjoyable." View Less
