Hi. I'm 16, and this summer I’m pretty sure I’m doing a 6-week summer exchange program. I know I want to go to North America, but I’m not sure what country to go to. I have to have 3 choices, and these are the countries I have to choose from...

Costa Rica

I know my 1st choice is going to be Canada, and I'm not sure about the 2nd or 3rd choice
I was thinking maybe Mexico as a 2nd choice, then Costa Rica or Cuba as 3rd

Can someone who has traveled to these countries give me some advice?
I'm a 16-year-old girl, and I speak a little French (very little)
I want somewhere that I would have fun, and would give me a good experience

Thanks a lot!

I lived in Canada for 7 years. I can tell you that in Montreal you can have so much fun, however, you need to speak French in some cases. If you choose to stay in Downtown and attend English speaking programs then you can handle it.

Toronto is not much for fun but for serious families. You can still have fun during weekend. Vancouver downtown might also be of your interest.

You have also the option to go to Ottawa and come to montreal for the weekends:)
