      Both Adri and Alex had an amazing time in Mexico in the Arcos program. They enjoyed all of the sport excursions and cultural activities. Surfing and beach were particularly fun. They had a chance to practice their Spanish and learn about the local culture. They met new friends and had a great time with them. They are also very thankful to Pamela who took care of them and helped them through some challenging situations. Although Adrian's phone and some money were stolen, he looks back at this as a learning experience and knows to pay more attention to his surroundings. Both boys loved every minute in Mexico. I am extremely happy with Arcos and how well everything was organized at the local level. The on-site director and admins are extremely supportive, honest, dependable, with superior conflict resolution skills. They took very good care of our children. We look forward to booking another trip with Arcos. Cheers! Basia

      My son had an amazing experience over the two weeks at the Hike and Surf camp. He came back the most effusive I've ever seen him - it was all due the experiences from this trip. The program director was also a lovely human that made the trip even more special. It also helped that all the boys on the trip really got a long. Besides surfing, they had a fun activity planned each afternoon. I would say this camp is for a kid that is willing to try new things and is active.


    • My Arcos director was amazing! Lots of fun, funny, creative, helpful and supportive. Everything was well-organized and accommodations were great. I really enjoyed practicing my Spanish. I highly recommend this program!
