Colombia Immersion - Faces of San Carlos

Spanish Adventure is more than just a Spanish school in Colombia. It provides authentic immersion in Colombian culture in the town of San Carlos.

Every day, I saw many of the same friendly faces and, over the past month, some of them have become friends. Let me introduce you to some of them!
