We at Intercultura try to help conserve our planet as much as possible.  From recycling to installing solar panels to eliminating the use of plastic coffee stirrers, we love to live the “Eco Tourism” way that Costa Rica loves and inspires.  Did you know that in 2015 Costa Rica has been running exclusively on renewable energy?  The local government has set the goal to become completely carbon neutral by 2021, but we can’t do it alone.

Many students ask us about travel insurance, and we recommend that everyone do their own research to determine which travel insurance policies are right for you.

We're sad to see them go, but so glad that our teens had a great summer learning Spanish in Costa Rica. From making new friends, to trying new foods, to Tarzan Swings in the Cloud Forest, this year's teen camp was our best one yet!

Intercultura's Teen Camp 2015 has started off with a bang!  The teens met on Monday morning and hit it off as if they were old friends.  They hit the town running with a trip to Heredia's Central Market where they tried an array of unfamiliar, exotic fruits such as carambola (star fruit), guanabana (sour sop), mamón and mamón chino (lychee) and even manzana de agua (water apple).  

Jane, 59 years old from the USA, has been with Intercultura for quite some time.  In 2009 she came to Intercultura for the first time. Since then she has returned every year. Get inspired by her Costa Rican Spanish learning experience!
