Join a standard group Spanish course in Puerto Viejo, a small laidback beach town and surf mecca located on the Caribbean coast.
Our Spanish School in Puerto Viejo, founded in 2012, is perfect for students who like to be able to visit the beach every day. The school is located right in the center of Puerto Viejo and is only 200 meters from the beach. Spanish classes are held outside.

Set in a lush tropical garden of fruit trees and hammocks, Spanish by the Sea - Puerto Viejo provides a perfectly relaxed environment for studying. The center of town is within a short walk from the school. There you will find restaurants and bars as well as the beach lined with fishing boats and artisan markets.

The School & Hostel can accommodate 12 students, has 3 open-air jungle classrooms and dependable free Wi-Fi throughout.

Who likes to study at Spanish by the Sea - Puerto Viejo?
Sea lovers, surfers and socialites! This small yet lively beachfront town is popular among world travellers for its laid back rasta-reggae vibes, late-nite parties, the area’s spectacular beauty, and world-class surf breaks. The surfing attracts both pros and beginners alike with the least expensive locally instructed lessons offered in Costa Rica. For more relaxed activities, we also offer an extensive list of free volunteer opportunities ranging from child-care, flora and fauna conservation, to education to indigenous peoples.
Itinerary

Spanish in Puerto Viejo - Standard Group

Welcome Meet & Greet

Start of the program: Sunday at 17:00 Placement Test & 18:00 Welcome Talk. Complete beginner students don’t need to come for the Placement Test and can show up at 18:00 instead.

To welcome our new students and to kick off their first week, an Introduction is held every Sunday night. Our language program includes a social, educational and fun activity program during weekdays. This way the students not only learn Spanish, but also get offered activities such as Latin dance classes, movie night, free kayak use, zumba, yoga and happy hour drinks during our traditional Friday night barbecue (students bring food from different countries to share) are examples of the activities that can be included. The program varies per location and can vary per week. The school will be informing the students about the weekly offer. The best part is that it is all included in the course price. Every week during the introduction talk, the school manager will present the free activity program which we welcome the students to participate in.

Standard Group Spanish Classes

Standard Group Spanish classes include 4 hours of lessons a day from Monday to Friday. The hours are from 8:00 till 12:00 with a break from 9:50 till 10:10, or 13:00 till 17:00 with a break from 14:50 till 15:10. When there is only one student at this level, you receive 2 hours of private lessons at the same price.

About Your Location

Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is a small laidback beach town on the Caribbean Coast near the Panamanian border. Puerto Viejo is still non-commercialized and unspoiled.

The natural jungle-beauty of Puerto Viejo and its internationally recognized surf breaks are just a couple of reasons why backpackers and travelers from all over the world can be seen hanging out on this stretch of Caribbean Coast. The attractive feature to this region is the lack of high rise hotels and all-inclusive resorts.
