HOST FAMILIES IN COSTA RICA

More than just a place to stay - connect with the community!

Homestays in Costa Rica provide an economical alternative to hotels, especially for single travelers. The most valuable aspect of the homestay experience is the opportunity to really get to know a Costa Rican family and experiencing first-hand the famous Costa Rican warmth and hospitality!

At Intercultura Costa Rica, we offer homestay lodging at both of our school campuses: Heredia and Sámara Beach.

Carefully chosen Costa Rican families

Within walking distance of school and town, from half a block to max. 1 mile (1.5 km)

Two meals, Wifi, and laundry service included

Find out more about the benefits of staying with a local family, and why it's suitable for all ages of Spanish students.

HOMESTAY HOUSES IN COSTA RICA

Keep an open mind if you decide on staying with a local family

The standard of living and the culture are just different, especially when it comes to the more rural areas! If you choose our Samara Beach Campus, you will see houses in a rustic and simple style. Moreover, as in any tropical climate, you will see more bugs than you are used to. If you choose our Heredia City Campus, standards are more similar to what you may be used to back home, with some notable exceptions (thermal shower heaters, for example!).

Remember that true cultural experiences often require sacrificing certain material comforts, but can also broaden your horizons in ways you may never have imagined.

host families costa rica

"I had a blast during my week in Costa Rica. One thing I miss dearly is my wonderful host family. My host mother was one of the most wonderful people I have ever met in my entire life. I miss her almost everyday. We had a very special friendship, and I’m hoping that it’s a bond I can keep forever. Muchas gracias. ¡Pura Vida!"
