GAP YEAR PROGRAM

WORK STUDY TRAVEL IN COSTA RICA, GUATEMALA, PERU

The Country Jumper Gap Year program takes you from Costa Rica to Guatemala to Peru. Your entire experience is built around exploring and learning in these beautiful countries. All 3 countries are Spanish-speaking, but their culture, climates, and geographies are completely unique. Costa Rica is warm and tropical, Guatemala is cool, fresh, and historical, Peru is adventurous and challenging.

Maximo Nivel’s Country Jumper program is a 24-week gap year itinerary, with 8 weeks each in Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. If you prefer, there is lots of flexibility to personalize your program just for you.
