Interesting and fun!
I was living in San Ignacio in 2017 and heard about the BAS. I thought I'd head over, just for something to do. At $10 a day, I figured, if I didn't like it, I'd just leave. I stayed all day and signed up for the next two days! And I went back in 2018 and 2019 for the Symposiums. I learned so much, made new friends and had a really fun time all three years. I hope to go again!
