Your adventure in global travel has begun as you head to La Paz, Bolivia. As your plane descends, take a look out your window to see a diverse terrain of jungles, seashores, and canyons. A local guide will be waiting to greet you at the airport and transfer you to your lodge. 

Take some time to unpack and relax; you have the afternoon free. Stroll along the city streets, splash into the hotel infinity pool, or embark on a nature walk. It’s up to you! In the evening, you’ll meet for dinner with your local guide — an excellent opportunity to ask questions about your upcoming schedule.

Today you will make your way to a small school on the outskirts of La Paz where you’ll volunteer to teach. Engage in a couple of hours of orientation and training before meeting the students you will teach. Every teacher has differing strengths and weaknesses, so you’ll get the opportunity to choose your favorite subject. Next, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before boarding onto a cable car for a two-hour tour. Enjoy panoramic, aerial views of the colorful and lively city. After the ride, enjoy souvenir shopping at stalls in The Witches Market before enjoying free time to explore your surroundings on your own.

Today is your first day of classes! Review your syllabus the night before, but don’t be nervous! Head teachers will be alongside you if you are ever in need of assistance. We believe in you! After classes, make your way to Moon Valley. This famous natural wonder is on La Paz’s periphery. Arrive at the lookout point to marvel at the incredible natural landscape reminiscent of lunar terrain. After taking many photographs, hike down the valley to cool off in the river below.

Another day of teaching! By this point, your students will get to know you better and be thrilled to see you in the morning. Seeing their hope is one of the most rewarding aspects of teaching. After lunch at a local restaurant, make your way to the nearby town of Cabo San Lucas. Stop at the Tropic of Cancer monument to snap photos before arriving at a fishing village along the Pacific Ocean. Walk along the remote beach before diving into the crystal-clear waters. Following this, you’ll have time to explore the historical town independently.

Today is a unique day of teaching as you will no longer focus on academic material, but rather on learning real-life skills. After classes, make your way to the Waterfall Gardens Nature Park. There are numerous hiking trails through cloud forests and rainforests to check out. Be sure to also stop at the orchid exhibit, butterfly observatory, and snake exhibit. Finally, you will regroup to enjoy swimming in the pools of a couple of the many waterfalls.

It has been an incredibly adventurous and educational week in Bolivia, but the time has come for you to leave. Enjoy a final breakfast with your group and guides. Discuss your favorite memories of the trip. Next, it’s off the airport to catch your departure flight.
