It Has Been a Very Busy Summer at Human Connections in Bucerias
Elly Rohrer - Human Connections

August 29, 2017

This summer we hosted not one, but two internships here in Bucerías, and had the privilege of working with 15 outstanding university students from five different countries. Their projects focused on strengthening our local relationships and raising awareness about responsible tourism - a trend we are excited to see is growing around the world just as we continue to grow as an organization.

With the tour season right around the corner, we can't wait for what's in store. Read on to hear more about what's happening at HC.

Volunteer Spotlight

Meet Nadiely, the volunteer who took over our English classes this summer. A recent graduate of the local Harkness Institute, she will be attending Whitman College in Washington this fall.
