Yes, I recommend this program


This place is so great. The staff, the teachers, food, housing and overall experience. I learned so much and met so many great people. This is truly a paradise.
Spanish lessons are so good and if you start from scratch or already know some it will improve your skills. Laura and Peggy are very good at teaching.

All the staff is great as well as the other people who live here. Pablo, Mellie, Brandon, Sindy, Maikol, Chris, Ada and so on will all make your stay feel like a small home.

The city of Santa Teresa is small but good. Beach is beautiful and there´s many things to do. Jakera will also help organize great trips. ATV and isla tortuga were so great.

Cirenas, Monteverde and Natuwa are great things to do and you will learn a lot about animals, recycling and so much more.
