Description

- About Spanish Pura Vida -

Located in the heart of Costa Rica, Spanish Pura Vida offers a complete Spanish immersion program curated by our professional team of Spanish teachers. Using small groups of no more than 6 students, we immerse out students in 4-5 hour per day Spanish programs Monday through Friday.

We also offer a Homestay program where students live in the homes with local families and share two meals a day with them. Additional programs include Latin dance classes, local gym memberships, adventure tours, cultural tours, and free conversational programs with local English students.
