“The overall [API] program administration was great! It was so nice to know, before you were able to call your host country a home, that there were resident directors who could help you through every step of the transition. API also deserves credit for their incredibly well-organized excursions. My favorite part about this program was the opportunity to immerse myself completely in the culture of Costa Rica. I would definitely recommend this program to any student seeking a truly memorable and meaningful study abroad experience.”
