This was my first time to travel with Geeo. Always before I have traveled with high school students with People to People so have high expectations. I loved how this program offered flexibility and was focused on both educational activities and adventure. The Program was one of light emersion into the culture, so we did not stay in 5- star hotels but rather boutique type hotels where we could interact with many of the locals. Our transportation ranged from public and private bus, to boats, etc. Most of the program is ala carte so you can choose things you are interested in and not have to pay or spend time where you lack interest. This also allows people to be more in control of their own budget. Our guide admitted the most fun and interesting activity he did with us was to visit the local school, which he had never done on any other program in his many years of being a Central American guide. I really enjoyed traveling with other educators of all ages. Our group was very diverse and ranged in age from 23 to 67. I could not get over how flexible and cordial everyone was, given our diversity. I will definitely travel with Geeo again.
