I came to Costa Rica for the first time in the summer of 1990 to study Spanish and fell in love... with the language, the country, the people, the music, even the monsoon-like rains:). When I went home 6 weeks later I was determined to come back at some point, become fluent in the language and spend more time in this country that already felt like my adopted home. Three years later, I had graduated from college, spent a year in Asia travelling and volunteering, and I was ready to get back to Costa Rica.
Costa Rica celebrates Mother's Day on Monday, August 15. A national holiday, both campuses of Intercultura Spanish Language School will be closed so families can celebrate their Mothers! Read about a remarkable Nicoya mother of four generations in the latest Voz de Nosara.
On July 25, the Costa Rican province of Guanacaste celebrated the 187th anniversary of the annexation of Nicoya. The people of Nicoya, in a public event called "cabildo abierto", the equivalent to modern referendums, decided to annex the Partido de Nicoya to the Republic of Costa Rica. On July 25, 1824, Nicoya was formally joined to Costa Rica. Since then, the coat of arms of Nicoya states the words: "De la patria por nuestra voluntad" which could be translated as "part of the nation because of our own will".
I’m at the end of my first week of studying Spanish in charming Heredia after taking a few weeks of classes at the Sámara Beach Campus and have tried to take advantage of being in a city again!
Yogi I am not, but since trying yoga in Sámara, I decided to look for a class while I studied Spanish in Heredia. The school doesn't offer yoga classes like they do in Sámara so I was planning to look for a studio.
