A homestay, besides providing an opportunity to practice Spanish, is an enriching cross-cultural experience. Our host families, most of which have been welcoming students for years, are carefully selected for their convenient locations and suitable facilities.

While we encourage students to take advantage of the homestay for the cultural experience, some may prefer or find it necessary to stay in a hotel or apartment during their stay in Costa Rica; in which case, Intensa will provide a list of appropriate, reasonably priced hotels upon request. Our personnel will also be glad to help make reservations and obtain a student discount rate whenever possible.
