About

Costa Rica is known for its beautiful tropical landscape, and Atenas has received the honor of having the best climate in the world. With warm, sunny weather, and equally warm local people, it is an ideal location for interns year-round.

Atenas is a charming and relatively compact town. The area is known for agriculture, and the town is surrounded by plantations and the rich lush landscape that characterizes Costa Rica. The city has everything an intern needs including fitness centers, tennis courts, restaurants, banks, parks, shops, bars, and cafes. Local residents are incredibly warm and welcoming, and are always willing to help visitors with their Spanish and show them around their home town.
