For those interested in learning Spanish, Costa Rica seems to have it all â€” beautiful beaches and rainforests, a slower, easy-to-understand dialect and a wide selection of Spanish schools. Students interested in learning as much as possible about the country and its culture should take advantage of schools offering homestays, tours and cultural lessons.
Whereas the capital city of San JosÃ© is large and busy, Spanish schools in more rural locations can offer better deals in a prettier location. As more and more Spanish schools open up in Costa Rica, students can choose to live in the mountains or by the ocean, in bustling cities with great nightlife or in rural towns with few tourists. So for anyone looking to spend the morning learning Spanish and the afternoon hiking through coffee plantations or surfing, consider studying in Costa Rica.
