I was worthwhile indeed. I can't be more happy with the results. After 3 months of learning Spanish in an Intensive rhythm, I'm now able to hold any type of conversation.

Costa Rica is a fun and safe country with lots of natural wonders to explore and an interesting culture to experiment. If you're wondering about where to go in Latin America, start here!

Academia Tica is one of the few schools completely managed and run by Costa Ricans. We're proud and happy to welcome you to this country, its language and its culture. The school offers volunteering, internship and group programs as well as different activities to combine with Spanish language classes.

We employ local, qualified teachers with many years of experience. Most have been with us for a long time. Our school offer starts at 20 group lessons per week, however you can add as many additional private lessons as you prefer. Lessons are held in small groups to promote individual approach. Click here to find out about our Spanish programs!

We are an Instituto Cervantes Accredited Center. Click here to find out why this is important! There are many different activities involved in and out of class, this will make learning more dynamic and useful. Students will be learning about Costa Rican, Latin American and Hispanic culture.

We can be flexible and adapt to your needs. We offer two great locations with very different environments, nice facilities perfect for study. Coronado, an authentic Costa Rican town near the capital city of San José and at the foot of Braulio Carrillo National Park, an important protected rainforest. Jacó Beach, our second location, is the surf mecca of the Central Pacific, attracting visitors for its constant good waves and its amazing surrounding nature. Why not try both?
