Internship - Viña del Mar/Valparaiso, CHILE

Valparaiso and Vina del Mar are neighboring cities along Chile’s coast. If you are a fan of great weather and the beach, then we can’t think of a better place to do an internship in South America. This is especially true in the fall months in North America; in Chile, these months is when spring transitions into summer.

Internship - Montevideo, Uruguay

Our internships in Uruguay is one of the most unique out there! Montevideo in our opinion is one of the diamonds in the rough of South America. Uruguay doesn’t get as much attention as other countries in the area but it is one of our favorites. Most interns we’ve placed here have talked about a certain charm that this city and country offers. It is also a great, safe place to live where you will have every opportunity to perfect your Spanish language skills. Unique internships are offered in Montevideo Marine Turtle Conservation and Spanish Equestrian, for example.
