Are you eager to master Spanish and to transform your study experience into an unforgettable adventure?
What if we told you that you could do it in one of the world's most sought-after destinations, like Costa Rica? This tiny country is the ultimate destination for students seeking a vibrant blend of dynamic, communicative classes and outdoor exploration.
Here's the cherry on top:
With Intercultura Costa Rica you can choose either or two campus locations, or take Spanish lessons online:
Intercultura’s Spanish courses in Costa Rica are offered at our city campus, close to San José, in the historic, mountain city of Heredia. Heredia offers a unique and enriching experience with several advantages in comparison to the bustling capital of San José.
Less Tourists - More Immersion: Heredia is not a major tourist destination, which means you'll have ample opportunities for immersion in the Spanish language. With fewer English speakers around, you'll be more inclined to use and improve your Spanish skills.
Friendly Locals: Costa Ricans, known as "Ticos," are renowned for their warmth and hospitality. Interacting with the friendly locals will enhance your cultural understanding and fast-track your language acquisition.
Rich Cultural Experiences: Heredia offers a taste of authentic Costa Rican culture. You can explore local markets, participate in traditional festivities, and savor Costa Rican cuisine, all while practicing your Spanish.
Proximity to Nature: Costa Rica is famed for its stunning natural beauty, and Heredia is the best example of this! The city provides quick and easy access to mountains, lush rainforests, volcanoes, and national parks, providing excellent opportunities for weekend excursions and outdoor adventures.
Safe and Peaceful Environment: Costa Rica is one of the safest countries in Central America, and Heredia maintains a reputation for being a secure city where you can safely walk around, even at night. This safety factor can significantly enhance your peace of mind during your stay, particularly compared to San José.
Diverse Student Community: Heredia attracts students from all over the world who come to learn Spanish. This multicultural environment offers opportunities for cross-cultural friendships and networking. You will meet people in your Spanish courses, in dance classes, yoga, cooking, Zumba, weekly tours, and more!
Cost-Effective: Studying in Heredia can be very cost-effective. Accommodation, food, and transportation are often more budget-friendly than in larger cities or on the coast.
Easy Access to San José: Heredia is located just a short distance from the capital city, San Jose. This proximity provides access to additional cultural and educational resources, museums, concerts, shopping and transportation hubs.
Adventure and Eco-Tourism: Heredia is an ideal base for exploring Costa Rica's adventure and eco-tourism offerings, including ziplining, hiking, bird watching, and more, all while using your Spanish skills to enhance the experience.
Costa Rica's Blue Zones are specific regions within the country known for their exceptional longevity and overall well-being of their inhabitants. These areas have attracted attention from researchers and health enthusiasts worldwide due to the high concentration of centenarians and the low incidence of age-related diseases among their populations. The factors contributing to the longevity of these communities include a combination of a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, an active lifestyle, strong social connections, and a sense of purpose.
The "Blue Zone" (a term popularized by National Geographic) in Costa Rica is primarily found in the Nicoya Peninsula, right where Intercultura’s Sámara Beach campus is located! Experience Costa Rica Spanish Immersion in a Blue Zone that has become a source of inspiration for those seeking to lead longer, healthier lives and have spurred initiatives to promote healthy living and well-being in various parts of the world. Take a Spanish language course in Costa Rica, immersion yourself in Costa Rican culture, and make life-long friendships with Ticos and students from around the world.
Language courses online are a convenient and cost-effective way to acquire a valuable skill.

Want to know why it's so much fun learning Spanish at Intercultura?
Most fun, qualified, and engaging Spanish teachers
Our teachers know how to keep you engaged and motivated throughout your entire Spanish program.
We take culture seriously
Our Spanish school is a unique school among the many present in the capital area: We offer not only linguistic immersion and daily activities on campus, but we also integrate our students into the artistic and cultural life of Costa Rica that most tourists don’t get to see.
At Intercultura we guarantee 100% language and cultural immersion!
Meet and connect with locals without even having to leave the school
At our Heredia School Campus we also host local English and Portuguese students, and many of them are university students. This gives you the best opportunity to practice your Spanish or do a language and cultural exchange (called intercambios) on campus.
