Excursions & Activities
The wide range of excursions and activities complement the rigorous academic program and provide recreational opportunities to discover the cultural heritage and natural beauty of Puerto Rico while expanding the students’ Spanish language skills. Weekend trips include such destinations as beautiful Old San Juan with its historic El Morro Castle, El Yunque Tropical Rainforest with its incomparable collection of fawn and flora, the world’s largest telescope at the Observatory in Arecibo, Las Cuevas de Camuy (caves created by the world’s third largest underground river), and the spectacular phosphorescent bay at La Parguera.
On- and off-campus activities include salsa dancing, films and DVDs, hikes to explore the indigenous Taino Indians’ petroglyphs with hand carved drawings in stone, fishing in the Sabanera lakes, and shopping trips to local shops.
The Program uses the excellent sports facilities of the Sabanera community, as well as the championship golf courses and water sports facilities of the Dorado Beach resort. The afternoon sports program offers a wide range of recreational sports, including basketball, tennis, golf, soccer, swimming, fitness, kayaking, and sailing. Students may also enroll in the AC Milan Soccer Camp, which offers intensive training for competitive players under the supervision of highly-qualified coaches.
