Spanish Classes


Language is the key to learn about the country its culture and people.

You can do this on the spot, in our Hotel El Marañón, where we offer individual or group courses, taught by qualified native-speakers who are specialist in their field. In no time at all you can achieve linguistic competence at various levels.

We also offer clases in our town hotel Luz de Luna, the language center near by or in Playas Samara, you can choose where you will be more confortable learning this new language.

The CULTOURICA concept combines creative learning with a sound grounding in Spanish grammar, thus giving you the opportunity for “total immersion”. You`ll discover a great deal about the country and the people, which will serve you in good stead for the rest of your journey.   It is our firm belief that you can only learn the language of a country through its culture, so we specialize in the music, literature and ecology of Latin America.

The courses utilize various teaching materials and audiovisuals ads but it´s our teachers who play the most important role. They all work in their mother language but most of them also speak English. And, for further practice or future exchanges, we can arrange contact with a Costa Rican who is learning English.

In the very personal atmosphere of Hotel El Marañón, learning Spanish is simply fun. Everybody can join in and individual requirements are easily catered for, because the groups are small. Classes are often held outdoors on the shaded patio, so during breaks you can stroll around the garden, observ humming birds or pick tropical fruits. We timetable the classes to ensure that you have plenty opportunity to explore San José and the Central Valley, or, if you prefer, just lie back and relax in a hammock.
