Absolutely phenomenal!

InterExchange does an excellent job of blending culture, adventure, and knowledge while simultaneously being conscious of their traveling impact & how the learning experience can be utilized for daily life. I highly recommend this escapade to anyone who is ready to learn new things while connecting with amazing people. ¬°Pura vida!
