Experiences of our intern Kristiina during her hotel internship 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 had such a positive and adventurous time and enjoyed her hotel internship in Costa Rica.

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