Philadelphia has a unique and thriving Latino community. For decades North Philly has been home to many Puerto Ricans and more recently South Philly has become home to a large Mexican community.
It is a safe and friendly location for students with U.S. medical, food, and water standards. It is a great student travel destination given the unique mix of Latino cultures, plus there is no need for passports!
