Spanish at Locations | Costa Rica & Panama

Want to learn Spanish AND have the freedom to travel around? Our 4 schools allow you to choose your adventure without losing academic continuity!

4 outstanding Locations to study!

Don’t want to commit to one location to study Spanish? Get quality instruction without sacrificing your rambling desires as you visit the most beautiful spots across Costa Rica & Panama. 

You will not be learning Spanish in a traditional setting, but rather in our open-air stations surrounded by nature. Whether it’s the volcano in Turrialba, the jungle in Puerto Viejo, the Caribbean Sea in Bocas or the exotic animal life in Boquete, your classroom will be difficult to forget!

Turrialba - Costa Rica: nestled amongst world-renowned rivers and misty mountain tops, the welcoming town of Turrialba is an ideal location to study Spanish. It is very authentic, not many people speak English and you can feel like a local for a while; shopping on the local farmers market, going to do sports in town or eating an ice cream in the park, just like the ticos do!

Puerto Viejo - Costa Rica: Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is a small laidback beach town on the Caribbean Coast near the Panamanian border and is still quite non-commercialized and unspoiled. The Caribbean ocean is 200 metres from the School; here you find the perfect place to learn to Surf and do a lot of Yoga!

Bocas del Toro - Panama: Located in Bocas del Toro, the archipelago off the northern Caribbean coast of Panama. The crystal clear waters, white sand beaches, world-famous waves, colorful coral reefs, the abundance of marine life make Bocas del Toro a tropical paradise. Let's not forget to mention the vibrant nightlife with live music and parties on the beach under the stars!

Boquete - Panama: With its alluring Caldera river flowing through its center, Boquete is an idyllic small town nestled in the Chiriqui highlands with a tropical but cooler climate. Hiking, soaking in the hot springs, ziplining between the tree tops and learning about coffee cultivation are just some of the activities to explore!
