Costa Rica

Study in Costa Rica with EF and immerse yourself in the rich culture and spectacular setting of one of the world’s most ecologically diverse nations.

Costa Rica is a nature-lover’s paradise. Giant sea turtles hatch within several meters of sunbathing tourists, howler monkeys swing from palm trees in residential areas, lush rainforests harbor countless species of wild birds, and active volcanoes puff clouds of smoke into the clear blue sky. Large swaths of Costa Rica are environmentally protected and ecotourism is a major economic engine and point of national pride. There’s simply no better place to launch an international career in biology, ecotourism or environmental preservation. Study in Costa Rica with EF and you’ll discover a country that matches breathtaking scenery with vibrant culture. Stumble through the steps of a salsa dance with the help of a “Tico”, as locals are affectionately known. Sip locally-grown coffee before heading into the waves for a morning surf. Get acquainted with Costa Rican cowboy culture at a San José rodeo. And let exotic butterflies flutter into the palm of your hand while walking to class.

Study in Costa Rica at our Playa Tamarindo language center.
