While in Venezuela, the students, who were accompanied by four teachers, stayed at a student camping facility in the city of Merida, where they learned to speak Spanish more fluently with the aid of tutors.

During down time, they took the opportunity to go on sightseeing tours, including a visit to a fish farm, a zoo, and enjoyed a cable car ride to the highest mountain peak in the Country: El Teliferico.
