Here is your unmatched opportunity to immerse yourself in Spanish while at the same time engaging with local community through academic enrichment with local kids.  Truly live rural Tico life and get an intimate look into the less traveled Northern Central Valley of Costa Rica, home to many beautiful rainforests, waterfalls, rivers, wildlife, and popular Costa Rican produce such as cacao and pineapple.  During this experience:
Live in a combination of rural community cabins and host families, both within the welcoming rural community of La Flor in the cantón of Rio Cuarto.
Speak Spanish at all hours of the day as you live amongst Tico families in a community apart from tourists and visit incredible, off-the-beaten-path natural sites
 
Explore  a biological reserve, butterfly garden, Arenal National Park, mountain waterfalls, the history and process of chocolate, the longest suspension bridge in the region, the rainforest at night, a wild river by boat, and the deepest volcanic lake by kayak.
Learn with hosts who have lived in Costa Rica and studied the flora, fauna and region for years.  Engage in charlas to discover the natural history and wonders of this incredible area!
