Take a standard group Spanish course in the cute little town of Turrialba surrounded by volcanoes, raging rivers and lush, green rain forests.
Nestled amongst world-renowned rivers and misty mountain tops, the small and welcoming town of Turrialba is an ideal location to study Spanish. But don’t let the quaintness of the town fool you; the amount of daily activities and events both indoors and out are numerous. Raft the Pacuare, attend a Swing Criollo dance class and catch a live band all in the same day! Furthermore, this super friendly, non-touristy and non-English speaking community encourages a true language immersion in a place that feels more like home than living abroad.

Our Spanish school in Turrialba is perfect for adventurous people that love to learn about different cultures, ecosystems and tropical farming. The school was founded in June 2002 and is located a little outside of the typically "Tico" town of Turrialba. 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 roomy 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!

Who likes to study at Spanish by the River - Turrialba?
Are you looking for an authentic living abroad experience in a place where Spanish is actually spoken and tour groups rarely go? The welcoming community of local ticos and ticas provides an excellent setting to integrate and engage with the Latino culture. Our homestay opportunities provide even more immersion into the local culture and customs as you will participate daily in family meals, outings, occasions and holidays. From yoga to live music, salsa classes to river rafting, Turrialba is nothing shy of weekly activities and events, concerts and excursions to further your exposure to the language and culture.

Spanish in Turrialba - Standard Group

Welcome Meet & Greet

Start of the program: Sunday at 17:00 Placement Test & 18:00 Welcome Talk. Complete beginner students don’t need to come for the Placement Test and can show up at 18:00 instead.

To welcome our new students and to kick off their first week, an Introduction is held every Sunday night. Our language program includes a social, educational and fun activity program during weekdays. This way the students not only learn Spanish, but also get offered activities such as Latin dance classes, movie night, free kayak use, zumba, yoga and happy hour drinks during our traditional Friday night barbecue (students bring food from different countries to share) are examples of the activities that can be included. The program varies per location and can vary per week. The school will be informing the students about the weekly offer. The best part is that it is all included in the course price. Every week during the introduction talk, the school manager will present the free activity program which we welcome the students to participate in

Standard Group Spanish Classes

Standard Group Spanish classes include 4 hours of lessons a day from Monday to Friday. The hours are from 8:00 till 12:00 with a break from 9:50 till 10:10, or 13:00 till 17:00 with a break from 14:50 till 15:10. When there is only one student at this level, you receive 2 hours of private lessons at the same price.

About Your Location

Spanish by the River-Turrialba, founded in June of 2002, looks out over the surrounding mountain valleys home to world-class rivers, primary and secondary rainforests, a towering volcano, and the quaint town of Turrialba. Known for its authentic Costa Rican feel, you can easily find everything you need here: hotels, restaurants, pool & karaoke bars, gourmet coffee shops, ice cream parlors, discos, swimming pools, banks, internet cafés, gyms (aerobic, fitness, yoga, capoeira, karate, etc.), bookstores, post office, boutiques, and the weekly farmer’s market.

The school itself consists of a hostel for 12 and 4 open air classrooms with views of the jungle below and the volcano above as a background to your Spanish classes. A balcony lined with hammocks, a garden rancho for studying, a large office and a yard filled with fruit trees all contribute to a stress-free learning environment.

Accommodatie

In Turrialba you can choose between two different accommodation types. As a standard we accommodate all our clients in a hostel. Should you wish to stay at a local homestay, let your travel advisor know and they will help you with the booking.

Hostel (School Residence)
If you like to be independent, yet share with fellow students, we recommend staying at our hostel whilst you study Spanish in Turrialba. Most rooms in the hostel are to be shared by 2 students and there is one room that can be used by 3 students. If you prefer to have your own space, we also have private rooms and even a private room with a private bathroom. The hostel has a large fully equipped kitchen. You can also order continental breakfast for USD4 (to be paid locally). There is a balcony with hammocks where you can enjoy the beautiful view of the volcano and the jungle in front of the hostel where you can spot sloths, toucans and lots of other birds.

Local Homestay
We are very proud of our homestay program in Costa Rica. Living with a local family is a unique experience that will provide you with the opportunity to not only learn the language but also explore the culture of Costa Rica. Our homestays in Turrialba have been carefully selected. The host families love to share their culture with you by for example taking you to family parties. The rooms in the homestay are private and have shared bathrooms. Our homestays in Costa Rica include breakfast and laundry, but if you pay a bit more you can get dinner and lunch included as well. Food is typically Costa Rican, nevertheless, most host families can adapt a little upon request (e.g. considering special dietary restrictions). If you don’t use our pick-up service from San José Airport to your homestay in Costa Rica, you need to call the school to let us know at what time you will arrive in Turrialba so your host family can welcome you at the bus station.

Lokaal vervoer

You have two options regarding transport to Turrialba. You can make your own way there, or you can pay extra and have a taxi transfer from San Jose International Airport directly to your accommodation in Turrialba. The transfer is NOT included in the price and will be booked separately.

Maaltijden

If you are staying at the hostel (School Residence), meals are not included.

If you are staying at the homestay, the meal inclusions will depend on the package you choose:
- Breakfast
- Breakfast & dinner
- Breakfast, lunch & dinner

The food is typically Costa Rican, nevertheless, your host family can adapt a little on request (e.g. considering special dietary restrictions).
