At Maximo Nivel, we believe an important part of any program abroad is to get out and take part in sightseeing and local events. As experts on Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru, the Maximo Nivel team can answer any questions you have. Travel plans are easy to arrange through our on-site travel partners.
In Costa Rica, participants can hike up volcanoes, go whitewater rafting, and take a trip to the Pacific or Caribbean coasts. At the beach, you can scuba, surf, snorkel, and body board; or stick to land and explore the National Park in Manuel Antonio, including hiking, adventure tours, and zip-lining. In and around San Jose, you can take a city tour, go to the National Theatre, visit the central market, and hike through cloud forests and waterfall gardens.
In Guatemala, there is plenty to see and do including cultural events, tours, treks, mountain biking, and outdoor markets. Just outside of Antigua, explore coffee farms, volcanoes, and both Mayan and colonial ruins. Participants can also visit beautiful Lake Atitlan, Semuc Champey, and the famous Tikal archaeological site.
In Peru, the Cusco area offers a huge variety of historical sites along with epic treks and cultural tours. Most commonly, people like to explore the Sacred Valley, Lake Titicaca, and of course Machu Picchu. You can also take part in a mix of Inca and Catholic festivals.
