Why Choose API?

Why Choose API in Costa Rica
Within the supportive environment of the API programs, API participants are encouraged to explore their host communities and become increasingly independent and confident in their own abilities. We strive to make international educational experiences accessible to as many participants as possible, and, as such, work to provide multiple program components at a low program cost.

“API deserves credit for their incredibly well organized excursions. I really enjoyed getting the opportunity to travel with other students in my program to discover the beauty of Costa Rica. My favorite part about this program was the opportunity to immerse myself completely in the culture of Costa Rica. I would definitely recommend this program to any student seeking a truly memorable and meaningful study abroad experience. ”
