Costs and Dates:
Guatemala: $1500 + ~$500 for round trip flightDominican Republic: $1700 + ~$500 for round trip flight (the DR is more advanced thanGuatemala and thus more expensive. The $1700 is subject to change. We are currently inthe works to knock it down to $1500)
All accommodations, three meals a day, safety, transportation, etc. Theonly extraneous cost one may have is if they chose to party or buy souvenirs. Highlyreasonable for the number of days we spend abroad.
After we receive your application we may invite you to an interview. If you pass theinterview, there is
for a second interview (this is to be determined based onthe number of applications we receive). Furthermore, we ask for a $100 spot deposit.This is NON-REFUNDABLE, and is required because once you commit we do bookhotels/host families and they do have a cancellation fee. This is to make sure we don’t getunfairly charged because someone backs out. The $100 dollars is NOT in addition to the$1500, it is part of it.Feb. 15
