Our Spanish immersion residences in Mexico and Spain are open year-round...
However, once a year, we move our operations to a unique location for a one-time Spanish language and cultural immersion.
After editions in Galicia (2018), Buenos Aires (2019), Miami (2021) and Yucatan (2022), the 2023 special will take us to stunning Costa Rica!
The 2023 Special will be even more special as we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary in Costa Rica with ANDERS LANGUAGES’ owners and our most experienced instructors from Spain and Mexico.
The Spanish Immersion and Intercultural Experiences
Costa Rica is known for its natural treasures. Over 20% of its territory is made up of national parks and is home to rainforests, volcanos, waterfalls and an impressive fauna and flora. And of course, its unique beaches on the Pacific and Caribbean coast.
With your Spanish instructors, you will discover Costa Rica's unique Pura Vida lifestyle.
The Spanish Classes
The classes will be one-on-one or two-on-one, depending if you visit us alone or as a couple. This will allow us to focus on your particular needs and Spanish-learning objectives.
The Pura Vida Experiences
The Pura Vida experiences will allow you to experience the local culture while using your Spanish in an informal way.Check-out all the experiences here.
During the evenings dinner will be served either at the pool area or in town. The right moment for some informal conversations about Latin America, its culture and society
For this special we will take over a spectacular mansion in Playa Hermosa, nearby Jacó, less than two hours by car from Costa Rica's capital, San José.
At the mansion, our guests will enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific and the surrounding mountains.
All rooms have large beds, air-conditioning and en suite bathrooms.
Ticos (as Costa Ricans are named) start their day early as the sun goes up early, too.
Your day will start at 8 am, with breakfast in the company of our other guests and your Spanish instructors. After breakfast and depending on the day of the week, there will be classes, or excursions to explore Costa Rica’s treasures.
Lunch will be served at around 1 o’clock either in restaurants or at the mansion.
In the afternoon, after a well-deserved nap, you will have more classes or hands-on activities in Spanish, of course.
At 7 o’clock, we will meet again around the main table for a chef-made dinner: the right moment for some informal convos about Latin America, its culture and society.
The day will end at around nine, but feel free to continue enjoying the breeze of the pacific while enjoying a cocktail or ice-cold beer on the mansion’s terrace …
Located on the west central coast of Costa Rica, this once-small surfing village has evolved into the most developed beach town in the country.
With over 70 restaurants, bars, 3 casinos and an 18-hole championship golf course, the town is also known for being Costa Rica’s fishing capital.
From the country’s capital -San José- and Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO), Jaco is just at a 1.5-hour trip away by car.
Private Airport (or San Jose) pick-up and drop-off are included in the fees.
With a population of just above 5 million, Costa Rica is one of the smallest Spanish-speaking countries in the world.
It is, however, the 3rd most popular destination to learn Spanish, after Spain and Mexico.
The country is known for its natural beauty and the fact that it has no army.
This has resulted in Costa Rica being one of the few Latin American countries with an 0.809 Human Development index, considered a very high ranking.
