My company (CourseTrends) sent a team of eight to volunteer for one week with Makarios International in the Dominican Republic. On our last full day in the country we thankfully had a beach day in Cabarete. This is a tourist area clearly targeted towards English speakers, so it felt like a whole different country compared to what we'd experienced the rest of the week. We finished the day off having dinner with teachers from the Makarios School. Everything was all the more relaxing and enjoyable, after the previous several days of very hard work.
