Homestay in Costa Rica
Universal de Idiomas offers the opportunity to live with a Costa Rican host family. Living with a host family will help you practice your Spanish, live the Costa Rican culture and make friends. Each family has gone through a selection process and is selected to ensure that they fit the student’s needs. Many families have been with the program for years and know how to treat our students well.
The home stay program will give you the opportunity to live with selected Costa Rican families that don't speak English. Thus, it is the perfect environment in which to put into practice what you acquire in the classroom. It also rounds out your learning by giving you a first hand experience with the Costa Rican Culture, Cuisine and Warm family life.
In the first days of your stay at your Costa Rican host family, they will show you how to get around San José and inform you on what you need to know about the city. In addition, the family provides students with breakfast and dinner, as well as laundry service.
Private room, keys to the house, breakfast, dinner and laundry service are included in the homestay rate. Airport pick-up is optional.
Other housing possibilties
If you don't want to live with a host familiy, Universal de Idiomas can help you to find another place to live: a room in a hotel, a room in a (students´) flat or even an apartment, but keep in mind that it might be more expensive then a stay with a host family.
