About Program

Costa Rica consistently ranks as the happiest country on the planet. Travel to this friendly destination with Arcos and see why! Our study abroad program is located in the charming city of Heredia, known as the City of Flowers. It is perfectly positioned in the beautiful central valley with mountain views and cool temperatures. This ideal location allows us to easily embark on our excursions to explore the fascinating regions of this Central American country. Classes are held at a state-of-the-art university campus. You can choose from Spanish language classes of all levels and electives. Unique to Arcos are our internship courses and Animal Studies program based at a local wildlife rescue center. Our life-changing study abroad programs are known for the quality and personal care we provide our students. Step through the arch and into a world of growth and possibilities!
