For a kid who has already covered about half the globe, Debra had a sublime experience. Global Works has impressed and we'll be sure to let others know about it.

Debra Reynolds, Parent of Ecuador Participant

My favorite part was the four days at Tamarindo Surf Camp. Not only was I getting a great tan, but I learned about turtles, Costa Rican culture and most importantly, how to surf!.

Alex J., Costa Rica Participant

The rafting trip was absolutely amazing! It was so beautiful and fun, and the tour guides were really awesome.
