The dance culture in Latin America, as you probably know, is huge. Every country has its own traditional dances that date back centuries and at every reunion you will most likely see everyone up and dancing at some point. Folk dances can often be observed at events around the cities where hundreds and thousands gather to watch them. They play a very big role in each country’s history and culture and are greatly appreciated by all.
Some of the more modern dances that are particularly popular are tango, bachata, and salsa. The music is extremely popular and at clubs you will see people dancing the night away to their favourite songs.
To add to your cultural immersion experience we have included a dance class at some of the cities among our destinations for you to learn some steps and perhaps help you when out and about and having the opportunity to dance. The classes are included in the overall price of your elective to give you as many experiences as possible. You’ll be showing off your new moves when you get back home.
Everyone loves to eat and food in Latin countries is a major part of everyday life. Home cooked food is delicious and passed on through generations, and all the cities boast some excellent quality restaurants to go and try some fine dining too. Over your elective stay you are sure to find some new flavours that you love and have one or two favourite dishes. We want you to be able to take the tastes home and share them with your family so we include a cooking class for you to learn from scratch how to make one of the most loved dishes of your new destination. You will be involved from the buying of products to eating it all at the end so you don’t miss a step. A cultural immersion experience we believe will help you to remember your trip forever.
We include tours in every single location for you to enjoy in your time off from your elective. These are all included in the price you pay before your elective, meaning no hidden costs. We have carefully selected a variety of tours to well balance your trip and make sure you get the trip of a lifetime you expect.
There is nothing more important to us than your safety, this is why we have followed a rigorous plan to ensure and make sure that you will have an unforgettable and worry-free experience. The whole elective process has steps in each of them we want you to be sure about what you are getting.
