Experience Costa Rica

Located in the Central American isthmus, Costa Rica’s relaxed lifestyle, cultural diversity, democratic government, diverse wildlife and lush vegetation make it one of Latin America’s hidden gems and an ideal destination for study abroad. Even if you have had no previous Spanish language experience, you can study Spanish or take elective courses in English. The Spanish spoken in Costa Rica is considered one of the purest and easiest to understand in Latin America.
