This 16 day program immerses students into the Costa Rican culture and language, with 36 hours of Spanish language classes and a homestay with a host family.

Through in-depth classes and language exchanges with locals and our host family, students will feel confident as they travel to 4 cities, where there will be a variety of classes and activities that students can participate in with local instructors, allowing them to test their language skills.

Cultural activities include browsing markets, a cooking class, a yoga or Latin dance class, and much more!

In addition, there are many recreational opportunities for students to fully experience the lush and vibrant Costa Rican landscapes and wildlife. These include a weekend excursion to Manuel Antonio with optional surfing lessons and a wildlife tour of the National Park, visits to Rio Fortuna Waterfall and Baldi Hot Springs, and a full day at Arenal National Park, where we will host a wildlife tour, and students can visit the hot springs and experience canopy ziplining.
