Have you considered staying with a host family?
Living with a local host family is a unique experience that will provide you the opportunity to not only learn the language but also explore the culture of Costa Rica. A homestay is an essential part of an immersion Spanish course; only by mixing with the local people and having to speak the Spanish language you are going to do it and learn it naturally!
Maybe you are a bit hesitant but you need to know that our families are used to receiving foreigners like you in their homes and making them feel comfortable even if you don’t speak Spanish. They will be able to communicate with you!
