Costa Rica's capital San Jose, is home to cultural institutions like the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum. At the same time, it is particularly known for its paradise-like beaches on the Caribbean and Pacific Ocean, active volcanoes, and very diverse wildlife. Moreover, you'll find plenty of activities to choose from such as surfing lessons, scuba diving, eco tours, hiking through cloud-covered rainforests, biking through awesome trails, ziplining in national forests, yoga classes at the beach and more. Additionally, this peaceful and family-oriented country features an array of environmental attractions such as mighty volcanoes, misty cloud forests, stunning river valleys, and hundreds of beaches from famous to secluded ones. Furthermore, it rains year-round in Costa Rica, although from December to April is generally considered the dry season, and the official rainy season starts in May. This amazing Central American country, is one of the world's most bio-diverse ones, hosting over half a million species! Costa Rica quickly became one of the top destinations for nature lovers since more than 25% of the country is protected in national parks and reserves, such as the Manuel Antonio National Park, which hosts howling monkeys, sloths, lizards and much more. In the far north-west, you will find the dry forests of Guanacaste, a Unesco Natural World Heritage site. On the south are hidden beaches at Nicoya Peninsula, while on the central Pacific coast is sunny Jacó. Also, local residents, known as Ticos, are friendly and eager to share their ecologically-rich home to visitors.

Accommodation Options in San Jose, Nosara, Jaco Beach and Playa Tamarindo


To keep learning Spanish outside the classroom, we strongly recommend the option of home-stay living with a Costa Rican Host Family. You will be placed with a local family who will introduce you to the typical lifestyle of Costa Rica and will help you learn Spanish by practicing on a daily basis what you have learned in class and in day-to-day activities. We have carefully selected local families for your homestay and you will become part of the family while in Costa Rica. You can select a private or a shared room. Additionally, you will be provided breakfast only or dinner as well each day with your family. Most Costa Rican families do not have air conditioning. They mostly use fans. You may book a hotel or rent an apartment if you feel like you will need extra cooling during your stay.

Rates vary depending on the meal plan you chose, whether 1 meal or 2 per day.
