Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Conversations only in Spanish, use it to the max. Regarding accommodation - information what to expect so that there would be disappointments and additional costs. In Boquete - a full family luxury. Bocas del Toro was a nightmare that I want to forget. I want to write more about this topic. The school should check the accommodation conditions so as not to expose the client to additional costs. This nightmare, thank God, is right behind me. Reception in Bocas was far from great, I will write about it in a separate letter.
Other comments:
Fantastic professors and family with whom I lived. Conditions were perfect and clean. Only superlatives. I recommend to all. Virginia is fantastic and competent.
