From prestigious universities to hip gastropubs, a vibrant artistic culture to a booming music scene, San José blends urban color and stunning natural beauty; more than 800 miles of coastline and acres of lush rainforests lie just a short drive from this diverse metropolitan center. When you’re studying abroad in San José, your immersion opportunities are limitless: You can hike on a volcano, explore the rainforest, and get up-close-and-personal with sloths. You can hone your Spanish skills, gain career-boosting experience, and build marketable skills in an internship. You can give back to your host community through volunteering, learn new dance moves, and lounge on the beach (Pacific or Caribbean? Take your pick!) Choose from a range of academic offerings in fields uniquely suited for study in San José, like Health Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Liberal Arts, and Spanish Language.
Lush cloud forests. Sunny beaches. Unparalleled biodiversity. A range of opportunities to hone your Spanish skills and immerse in local culture. Nestled between the Pacific and the Caribbean, Costa Rica is not only known for its stunning natural beauty (more than a third of the country’s land enjoys environmental protections) but for its commitment to democracy and peace; Costa Rica boasts more teachers than policemen and hasn’t had an army since the 1940s. Add in a high standard of living and universal access to education and health care, and it’s easy to see why Costa Rica consistently ranks in the world’s top 12 “happiest countries.” Study abroad in Costa Rica and experience pura vida – pure life – for yourself.
