Afternoon & Evening
For lunch you can stop by one of the various shops or cafes around the town (we’ll show you on your first day), or head straight back to the house.
Most afternoons are your free time, and the swimming pool, tropical garden and games area at the house offer a perfect contrast to the busy hospital. If you want to read or study, the living and dining rooms are usually quiet during the afternoons.
The beach is a short taxi ride away for you to dip your toes into the Caribbean sea, or if you’re feeling more active there’s horseback riding and ATV cross-country adventures not far away. Once a week everyone usually gets together for a sunset cruise on a sailing catamaran, definitely a highlight of Caribbean life!
Dinner is prepared fresh at the house five nights a week, and usually served around 7pm (though we’re happy to fit around your free time plans – just talk to the Chef). Sunday is traditional Caribbean food night, and at least once a week we do a poolside barbecue.
Most evenings there are things going on at the house, including the weekly Global Health Tutorial, a chance to try your hand at salsa, merengue or bachata, and lots of games (that have been known to get a little competitive…). On Friday and Saturday night, most students go out for dinner at one of the many relaxed outdoor restaurants nearby (on our High School Program this is organized and supervised by staff).
