Experiences of our intern Kristiina in Costa Rica

As a part of her studies Kristiina did a hotel internship in Costa Rica. Here you can read more about her experiences…

Our intern Kristiina worked in a 5 star hotel in Costa Rica for a practical training period of three months. During her internship in rotation, organised by s-w-e-p, she had the opportunity to gain experiences in different departments.

Kristiina writes us the following about the time she spent in Costa Rica:

“The most memorable thing about my work placement are definitely the people who I worked with. We learned so much from each other and had such fun together. I spent three wonderful months with them which I will never forget.

During my free time I liked exploring the surrounding area and traveling through Costa Rica. It is very cheap to travel by bus there. It can be a bit time-consuming, but it is worth to see the amazing nature and landscape of Costa Rica. There are so many great tours and activities to do. I did horseback riding, zip line and rappelling which were all amazing experiences. The local people are very open, friendly and helpful in case I had a question or found myself a bit lost. All in all I had a lot of fun exploring Costa Rica and I definitely want to go back to see more.

I want to say that the communication on the part of s-w-e-p has been excellent and that you have been so patient and helpful with me in setting up this internship. Thank you so much!”

We are glad that Kristiina enjoyed her internship and that she had such a positive and adventurous time in Costa Rica.

Thank you Kristiina for your feedback and we wish you all the best for your future!
