Private room
Laundry service
Two meals: a good breakfast and a main meal



1. Homestays start on the weekend prior to the first date for lessons.2. Students with homestay will be picked up at the airport for immediate transfer to their host family.3. INTENSA makes a real, reasonable effort to group students according to their oral proficiency level. It sometimes happens, however, that a student’s level does not correspond to any of the existing levels, in which case the student will be given three hours of private lessons instead of four in a group at no extra cost, until another student is found at the same level.



While we encourage students to take advantage of the homestay for the cultural experience, some of our students prefer or find it necessary to stay in a hotel or apartment for the time they are here in Costa Rica. In which case, Intensa can supply a list of nearby, reasonably priced hotels upon request. Our personnel will be glad to help making reservations and obtaining a student discount rate whenever possible.

Students who choose alternate lodging should deduct $145 per week from the fees shown and are responsible for arranging their own transfer to and from the airport.
