"Gaining Cultural Competence" CulturalCompetence's Profile


We love to travel the "backroads" and get to know the locals when we travel. Arnold speaks 6 languages fluently, so we can nearly always find a new friend wherever we go! In the past year we have been to Boston (USA), Puerto Rico (Culebra), Isla de Pasqua a/k/a Easter Island (Chile), Moorea (Tahiti), the Netherlands, Nicaragua, and Honduras. We are currently planning a trip to NYC. Living in Florida, we are very fortunate to have awesome dive opportunities in our "backyard"...when the hurricanes don't mess things up! :-)

    Dear CC, Since I love Culebra, and you have been to Culebra, will I enjoy Nicaragua's Corn Islands? Culebra is fantastique!
