Spanish Language Immersion in Heredia

The province of Heredia is the coffee-growing capital of Costa Rica, where one can still see loaded ox-carts bringing in the beans from the coffee plantations characteristic of the green mountainsides. In the rural villages you will witness a way of life very different to that of the cities, and see vestiges of the old colonial architecture once typical in the entire central valley.

Heredia's proximity to transportation hubs such as the airport and the central bus stations in San José make it an ideal base for your stay here. Easily accessible from the city are the nearby Poás and Barva volcanoes, and Costa Rica's numerous beaches and national parks. Thus, in addition to learning the Spanish language, you may thoroughly explore the country's natural wonders, world renowned for their beauty and biodiversity.

Each month we have a new activity plan of special events, national holiday activities, and a variety of fun excursions which are accompanied by a school teacher or staff member and in which we encourage English students to participate so as to promote social interaction with the locals. These activities include football (soccer) games, trips to the bowling alley or roller-skating rink, special dance or theater shows, discussion groups, live music discos and more.

Our Spanish language immersion allows you plenty of time to discover the culture & activities of the area around Heredia, Costa Rica.




Learn Spanish in a typical small town on the outskirts of San Jose. Enjoy a truely Spainish immersion in San Joaquín de Flores, a middle class suburb of Heredia... a great place to meet the locals.

After class activities include visits to a butterfly farm, local coffee plantation, waterfall rapelling, hiking to the Barva Volcano, rain forest canopy tours, river boat excursions to Sarapiquí, as well as trips to museums, theatres and much more (more)
