Inauguration of the new concept
Our school is located in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, a natural paradise in the south-east of Costa Rica, surrounded by lush tropical jungle, pristine beaches, national parks and a unique world of animals, birds and plants along the beautiful Caribbean coast.
Here you will meet people from all over the world, have a wide variety of activities and learn Spanish with the help of our professional teachers who love their work.
At the same time, you will have the opportunity to apply what you have learned directly on the spot. This way you will experiencie the latin culture on a whole new level, interact with local people, make friends and thus enrich your trip.
Equally important is having company along the way, meeting fellow travelers and adventure seekers with whom to share experiences. Join the "Pura Vida family" where you will learn Spanish, spend free time and have fun in the community with like-minded people!
Yes we understand you, you want to learn Spanish, but you are also after the best experience you can possibly get while you are in Costa Rica. Understanding what locals say is key to that. You will be able to experience the latin culture in a whole new level, talk to locals, make friends and above all, enrich your travel.
By the same token, it is also important to have company on the journey, fellow travellers and adventure seekers to share experiences with.
Join our school, meet great people, discover fascinating places and learn a lot of useful spanish to have a great adventure. When you come to Spanish School Pura Vida you will find all that!
At our school you will learn by experiencing instead of sitting in front of a chalkboard all day long. Our goal is to have you actively living the language and using your skills in real situations.
Our teachers just love what they do. Whether you are an absolute beginner or just trying to brush up on your Spanish. Our teachers will tailor the learning experience to your needs.
We keep our groups between 3-6 students so that you get an almost personalised experience. we make sure no one is left behind.
Not only do we study hard but we also have a lot of fun. Whether we go kayaking, surfing or sightseeing, be sure you won’t run out of adventures in Puerto Viejo.
Because great people make experiences greater. You’ll have the chance to meet other students, enrich your learning experience and share adventures together.
Enjoy the group dynamic and stay with your classmates at our cozy student lodge on the school property which has a choice of private and shared rooms as well as vegetarian breakfast and lunch for all together.
