Read reviews of our roadies


I did a three month internship in Buenos Aires through Road2Argentina and this was an experience I will never forget. I arranged it through Road2Argentina and the process went really smooth and easy. First we talked through Skype and we tried to find a suitable internship. I ended up at an amazing lovely marketing company operating in a beautiful part of Buenos Aires.


My internship in Buenos Aires was one of the best abroad trips I have ever taken. Allowed me to explore options that I can do once I graduate. Outside of my internship, my adventures were quite appealing. I cannot wait to come back to explore more of Buenos Aires and to enhance my Spanish speaking skills.


The experience is the perfect blend of learning, growing, and having fun. Road sets you up with an internship and company that they know pique your interest. They create activities that expose you to the Argentine culture in a fun way. The program allows students to feel more comfortable in a foreign country.
