Have you ever thought about leaving your home country or wondered what life abroad could be like?  Many Americans, Canadians and Europeans relocate to Costa Rica for its climate, safety, people and incredible biodiversity.  While many Costa Ricans speak English and a growing number are learning French and German, it is much easier to learn at least basic Spanish if you plan on living here.  At Intercultura we can help you learn or improve you Spanish and with so much more.  We can offer advice and assistance regarding:

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).
