Program Payment

Intercultura Costa Rica Reception


In order to hold your place in our Spanish programs, we require the following deposits depending on your program length:

  • 1-4 weeks: $100 USD
  • 5-9 weeks: $200 USD
  • 10 weeks or more: $300 USD

Please pay your deposit via credit card or PayPal upon enrollment or the latest 2 weeks before your program start date. This fee will be applied to your total program cost, which can be paid upon arrival at the school. If you are not sure you will attend the program, we suggest you wait until the deadline (2 weeks before your program start date) to send the deposit, as it is non-refundable. Programs for those we have not received a deposit, are not confirmed and the spot is not guaranteed. The rest of the program fee may be paid upon arrival at Intercultura in US dollars, Euros, Costa Rican colones, Visa or Master card, or in advance with a bank transfer or PayPal. 

PLEASE NOTE: Traveler’s cheques and money orders are no longer accepted in Costa Rican shops and services. We recommend bringing a Mastercard, Visa credit/debit card or American Express, or prepaid debit card instead, as these are widely accepted throughout the country.

Follow the prompts in order to make your payment, in US$, for the amount invoiced.  

If you chose a bank transfer as your payment method, please be aware that you will need to have to cover your bank`s fees, typically between $20 - $40 US for international transfers.

If you chose to have the school pre-arrange transportation with a provider from Sámara, they will be at the airport at the time and day you have indicated in our registration form. If you do not arrive on this time/day, for whatever reason, you will be charged the full amount of the pickup, to be paid directly to the taxi, as he will have already made the journey to the airport. NOTE: If you prefer not to be potentially responsible for this charge, you should NOT choose to have airport pickup, but rather take an airport taxi directly, which will cost approximately $15-20 more, but has no cancellation penalty.
