Advantages for Our programs
We are neither located nor based in the San Jose area – which means you have a chance to get away from the limiting city but not be stranded from civilization. Being located in a small safe town about 1 hour from San Jose allows students to really get out and get involved with the community on a daily basis, increasing their comprehension and understanding of the Spanish language and culture in return enjoying their program that much more.
We own the Spanish School and hotel – we know our town, homestays and community and our staff are 100% involved in your program on a daily basis allowing us to set up the best program to fit your needs and goals with an unbeatable feel for that perfect balance that both participants and supervisors are looking for.
We are the organizers and implementers of your program – no middle men here which helps save money. We can run programs through your home country agency or set up your program from start to finish.
