Where will WE stay?
Participants have the option to either stay with well-screened host families or at our headquarters depending mainly on availability and preference. Should participants have a preference, they should let our in-country coordinator know as soon as possible-in their application. We try to accommodate preferences. Host Families are well-screened and offer participants a shared bathroom, private bedroom, electricity, and running water. Headquarters housing offers participants shared bathrooms, hostel-style bedrooms, electricity, running water, and WiFi. Participants receive three light traditional meals per day at either accommodations.
What will we eat?
Participants will be given 3 meals per day. Keep in mind that food will be typical Costa Rican food, so participants may want to bring snacks like granola or protein bars with them to the project site.
What Will our Schedule Look like?
The program usually consists of 4 hours of teaching a day. Participants will be responsible for not only teaching the classes, but also planning the classes and any games they would incorporate into the classes. After your time in the classroom teaching, you will be in your own Spanish classes. Your Spanish classes are more conversational, focusing on verbs, common phrases, and useful information as it relates to your project and program.
What can we do in our freetime?
Yes! Evenings and weekends are for you to spend either relaxing, or doing pre planned excursions and activities. We have partnerships with various tour groups to offer participants a number of fun things they can do in addition to their Spanish Immersion Service. Some of the activities we are happy to help plan for your group are: Zip Lining, ATV Tours, Surf Lessons, Beach Days, Tours and Sightseeing, Snorkeling, Boat Tours, Horseback Riding
