Our school is situated in a spectacular building in San Joaquín de Flores, a town with a population of approximately 10,000 at an altitude of 1,054 meters, 15 minutes by bus from the Juan Santamaría International Airport and the city of Heredia. The building features 21 classrooms, a conference room, cafeteria, administrative offices, library, common areas for relaxing and socializing, hammocks, tropical gardens. From the school, there is a spectacular view of the Poás and Barva Volcanos which are part of the mountain chain that surrounds the Central Valley of Costa Rica.
Just a short distance from the Capital San Jose, the lush and gorgeous province of Heredia is one of the most beautiful provinces in Costa Rica. Known for its verdant coffee plantation covered hills and volcanic national parks; this mountainous region also has dense tropical forests, stunning waterfalls and roaring rivers that make it the ideal destination.
You may choose between a stay with a local host family or a private apartment/studio.
The school offers weekly free or low cost sponsored activities (Latin cooking and dance classes, afternoon soccer matches, movie nights, and visits to museums, galleries, theatres, discotheques...). In addition afternoon and weekend excursions are arranged (trips to Irazu Volcano, Poás Volcano, the Orosi Valley, Lankaster Gardens and Cartago, a boat tour along the Sarapiqui river, a visit to the butterfly gardens in Guacimal and Sarch...).
It is the perfect place to relax, enjoy nature at its very best and learn Spanish. Offering a plethora of outdoors and adventure activities, the province of Heredia is definitely worth a visit.
