Homestay In Costa Rica

Students who choose IPED's Homestay Program become guests of Costa Rican families in their homes. This exposure to everyday family life in Costa Rica will provide you with an opportunity to practice your developing skills, and may be the most effective way to refine your Spanish skills. You will be placed in a comfortable home around the city of Heredia, usually within walking distance of IPED. You will be furnished with a room, breakfast and dinner, and laundry service. The families are carefully chosen and screened to ensure a secure and comfortable stay. Many of our students have felt that the Homestay Program in Costa Rica was the most rewarding part of their IPED experience, and often the Homestay program has led to a long lasting friendship with their host family. If the Homestay Program does not meet your needs, we will be happy to help you make other living arrangements.
