Backstreet Academy

10. Take a class at Backstreet Academy – This phenomenal organization pairs local artists/teachers/professionals with curious tourists looking to learn something new. Classes can vary in size, but all are run with the help of a facilitator who speaks excellent English. Whether you’re interested in cooking classes, boxing lessons, basket weaving or (like I was) iron pencil sketching, there’s something for everyone. You’ll walk away from the class having tried a new skill, and you’ll have supported the local economy in a very real, direct way.
