ISV offers you a range of options and excursions before or after your ISV Program to give you an even more incredible experience overseas. Please refer to each specific option or excursion page for full details. Prices are listed below.
Optional Activity Package
The purpose of the Optional Activity Package (OAP) is to provide you with even more activities to enrich your experience overseas. We are able to negotiate excellent prices for these activities, much less expensive than what you could get if you booked on your own. In addition, all bookings will be taken care of for you by your ISV in-country staff, so all you have to do is show up and be ready for some amazing adventures! Each year about 95% of all ISV participants worldwide enjoy the benefits of the Optional Activity Package. Please note that the OAP in each country is offered in addition to the 5 included ISV Activities.
Spanish Language Program
Begin your ISV Program in the Dominican Republic by immersing yourself deep within the culture of your host country though a 7 day homestay program with a local host family.
Since the vast majority of ISV participants travelling to your host country will participate in the ISV Spanish Language Program (regardless of their Spanish language skills), ISV assumes your participation and will add the cost of this option to your Program invoice. Any ISV participant who chooses to opt out of the Spanish Language Program must notify the ISV office via the ISV Travel Options Form.
