Our school in Alajuela


The school is located in La Guácima de Alajuela, a small village 18 miles northwest of San José, the capital of the country, and about 10 minutes from Juan Santamaría International Airport.

In this authentic town, people speak only Spanish, and the families preserve the real “tico” lifestyle and enjoy hosting foreigners. Most of these families are related to each other, which permits our students to interact with more than one host family.

The land has a spacious, park-like campus with a swimming pool, which offers a relaxing atmosphere for students.

Students can combine classes with swimming, playing soccer, basketball or volleyball, or resting under the shade of a tree.

Classes are often held in open-air classrooms surrounded by beautiful gardens and a wide variety of trees, flowers, birds and other animals.

Safety is a plus at the school for our students, due to the small size of the town.

The school also offers services to make your Costa Rica trip unforgettable, including assistance with:

  • Economical car rentals
  • Lodging
  • Tourist information
  • Transportation service
  • Pre-packaged or customized tours with knowledgeable, bilingual guides
  • Currency exchange
