The best place to learn spanish in Costa Rica

„Learn Spanish, enjoy the sea and
live the caribbean culture“

Harmony of body, mind and soul

We are more than just a school: The "Pura Vida" is a peaceful oasis in the heart of Puerto Viejo, which provides a pleasant setting for learning. A language course with us includes a harmonious master plan, physical and spiritual activity.
As a counterbalance to studying Spanish we offer yoga, workout and meditation as well as common leisure activities. This clear the mind for the coming day of classes.
In our student lodge there is plenty of space to either withdraw or exchange ideas with the other students. The holistic approach is rounded off by shared meals made from healthy, fresh ingredients.
At "Pura Vida" the name says it all: a meeting place for open minded people of all ages who love nature, want to live healthily, gain new experiences and broaden their horizons a shared home away frome home!

„If you want the best school to learn Spanish in Costa Rica, this is the right place. In the shortest time I’ve learned just as much as in 3 years of school and furthermore I’ve seen a lot of the surroundings during various excursions.
Moreover Luis and Almut were great hosts and very courteous.
I’m looking forward to come back one day!“
