Our school was founded June 2002 and is located a little outside of the typically “Tico” town of Turrialba. In Turrialba you can find a few hotels, some restaurants, (pool) bars, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, discos, a cinema, swimming pools, banks, internet cafés, a post office and gyms. When coming from San José, 10 minutes before entering town, you take a left into “Barrio El Recreo” to enter the “Entrada de Chirraca” and arrive at our Spanish school, an oasis of peace and therefore a great place to study spanish and relax. At 850 meters, it seems a little less hot and more “tranquilo” than in downtown Turrialba.
Spanish classes are mostly held outside, in one of the little huts or on the porch, from where you have a beautiful view of the volcano and the lush green surroundings. You can spot exotic birds like toucans, hummingbirds, and other tropical species while attending classes.
During breaks we serve delicious coffee from the surrounding highlands. If you want to stretch your legs, you can walk down the street in front of the school and maybe see some leafcutter ants coming by or even a sloth!
Our Spanish school in Costa Rica is perfect for adventurous people that love to learn about different cultures, ecosystems and tropical farming. It is not for people that wish to go out every night to a cool, trendy discotheque. The people in Turrialba love to go out for some drinks and salsa dancing on the weekends but generally not on weekdays.
