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.

The lush tropical garden around the school has different fruit trees and lots of bright colored flowers, which makes this an ideal place to study or relax after classes. You can spot exotic birds like, hummingbirds and other tropical species while attending classes.

Itinerary

Spanish in Puerto Viejo - Standard Group

Welcome Meet & Greet

To welcome our new students and to kick off their first week, an Introduction Talk & Drink 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 nights, cooking workshops, tropical fruit cocktail hours, yoga or a potlock barbecue with some drinks on the house! 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 9:55 till 10:05, or 13:00 till 17:00 with a break from 14:55 till 15:05. When there is only one student at this level, you receive 2 hours of private lessons at the same price.

About Your Location

Apart from its natural jungle-like beauty, Puerto Viejo is known for its great surf with high and constant waves, which attract surfers from all over the world. Backpackers just visiting the Costa Rican Caribbean coast are seen a lot here, too. The advantage of this side of Costa Rica is that there are no high rise hotels or ‘all-inclusives’ around here - Puerto Viejo is still very unspoiled.

Just outside the village you are surrounded by jungle with all its inhabitants including sloths, monkeys, anteaters, armadillos, snakes, skunks and lots of colorful birds, for example toucans and parrots. You will encounter all these animals easily during a walk or bike ride just outside town. The town has a scale of restaurants from cheap Costa Rican ‘soda’s’ to excellent international restaurants where you can enjoy all kinds of cuisines at all price ranges. There are two discos at the beach, weekly jam sessions and a few bands that play regularly for free at the restaurants and bars. It's nightlife entertainment at its best as you can choose between salsa, reggae, jazz, reggaeton, calypso - we have it all here in Puerto Viejo!
