Living Costa Rica (3 weeks Program)
A unique experience of language and adventure in Costa Rica
Our three weeks Living Costa Rica is a wholesome experience that same that our Living Costa Rica 2 weeks program introduces students to Costa Rican culture, its people and natural beauty. However the three week program will prepare students to give back to the local community by volunteering during their last week in the country.
The program is designed to integrate the learning of Spanish language through cultural immersion by living with a tico (Costa Rican) family, also by participating in real daily activities out of the beaten path and volunteering. No other Spanish school or tourist program will get this close to what ticos are really like.
Living Costa Rica gives our students the opportunity to develop a new perspective on the country they are visiting, at the same time that they are involved in fun, educational and culturally significant activities such as city and museum tours, going to out to hip local places and interacting with ticos, learning to dance local rhythms, visiting our world famous national parks, and of course as mentioned returning home with a feeling that they make a positive impact in the life of others.
It’s an opportunity of a lifetime!
