Homestay—You will move in with your host family upon arrival. The families are located within easy walking distance of the university and will provide you with daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You’ll have a private bedroom and laundry service. Your family will be interested in you and your activities and they will serve as a good source of local practical information and advice; you’ll get to live and learn the “Tico” culture from the perspective of a local family. Boarding with a family provides an unmatched opportunity for speaking Spanish and learning Costa Rican customs and is highly recommended.

To live in an apartment, it will be your responsibility to locate it and to make all rental agreements and payments.
