Itinerary

This itinerary is the starting point for your tour, but it’s not set in stone. If there are days you would like to change, or specific places you’d like to go, we can work with you to create a personalized program that fits the needs of you and your students.

Day 1: Samara Beach

Depart from the USA on Sunday. Arrive in Liberia where you will be met at the airport and transferred to your host families in Sámara Beach. The afternoon is free to unpack and explore.

Classes will be held in small groups of six students for four hours daily at your mid-sized Spanish language school established to offer all the advantages of an intensive Spanish language program at a beautiful Pacific Costa Rican beach campus.

Students will have shared rooms. Breakfast and dinner will be taken with the host families and lunch will be arranged at a local restaurant by the school.

Your family stay at the beach is definitely a rural experience. Houses are simple, rustic, and they do not have hot water (this is not considered a necessity in the tropical climate). Many of the houses are within walking distance, and students who live a little farther out often rent bicycles to reach school. Some families rent their own bicycles and other rentals are available in town. There is no ACIS Tour Manager included for this program. (D)

This morning, visit the language school for orientation and assessment of your level of Spanish. In the afternoon, you will attend your first group Spanish language class.
