Costa Rica

Language & Cultural Tour in Costa Rica

Combine language and adventure!

Hispanic culture, mist covered volcanoes, lush rainforest & deserted beaches make Costa Rica one of the most popular places to learn Spanish. Activities can be hands on and slightly more adventurous or simply a ‘best of’ cultural programme.
