... view of the volcano and the lake that we went kayaking on the previous day. We finished our trip on the Pacific coast in Playa Hermosa where we spent a day on the beach playing volleyball with locals and playing in the ocean. Overall I think this has probably been the best of the 4 student trips that I have done. The students have visited the rainforest, seen a ton of wildlife, hiked around an active ...
