How ‘academic’ is the program? Are we ‘learning’ the whole time?

We are looking for intellectually curious and academically motivated students. However, there’s also plenty of opportunity for rest, relaxation, and fun. Activities on the program include surfing, hiking, rafting, and kayaking, just to name a few examples. We also think hiking through the jungle to visit an indigenous community or spending the day learning the basics of permaculture on an organic farm, to name a few educational examples, is pretty fun, too.
