SUMMARY: In addition to offering language immersion classes, Maximo Nivel facilitates various volunteer opportunities in Central and South America, ranging from orphanage work with indigenous communities to conservation and construction. Prices include a shared room in a local’s home.
Review: “Maximo Nivel is a good program that acts as a landing pad for people who are arriving but it is much more expensive than just going there yourself. For a lot of people who have never travelled alone it works well, though I would recommend for more experienced travelers to look for a better organization. It also struck me as shitty that they were a for profit organization. But I appreciated the help getting there and standing up.”
