You never know when you might need basic first aid to save your or someone else’s life.  SOLO recently offered their Advanced Wilderness First Aid course taught at our Pucon Kayak Hostel location.  Local volcano, snowboarding, trekking, and river guides participated in the course.  Here are a few photos of the life saving course.
