Costa Rica Language & Service Combination 14 Days

Costa Rica Spanish Language & Service Program

This Costa Rica volunteer and language program is the perfect combination of immersive Spanish language study, meaningful service, and adventure travel! We have teamed up with Centro Panamericano de Idiomas (CPI), a renowned Spanish immersion school in Costa Rica with multiple campuses, to give high school students a unique educational experience featuring two diverse regions of the country: Heredia in the Central Valley and the beach town of Flamingo on the Pacific Coast. This variety ensures you enjoy diverse excursions to complement your in-class instruction. Whether you are whitewater rafting, building bunk beds for children or chatting with “ticos”, you are sure to improve your Spanish and have an unforgettable experience!

This 14-day program is a portion of our longer 21-day Costa Rica Language & Service program.
