I spent a week at this campus learning Spanish. I would like to thank Laura, the Director of the school, and of her administrative staff, and especially Jeanette, my Spanish instructor. It was an excellent experience that I will never forget. Julie from Wisconsin

My wife and I spent a pleasant week in Samara learning Spanish and enjoying the laid back llife in Costa Rica. The classes were well run with small classes tailored to one's level of comprehension. Meeting like minded people from around the world is also part of the experience. Highly recommended.

Immersion is definitely the way to go if you want to learn anything, and this is a great place to do it. The staff is awesome, the teachers and friendly and great at teaching solely... More

I was here for 3 weeks and my Spanish speaking really improved. The first two weeks I was lucky enough to be in a class with just one other student. The third week there were five in the class, all younger than me and working on their 3rd or 4th language. The teachers are very helpful and speak only Spanish.... More

As chaperones for a high school tour to Costa Rica, we took a group of 20 students to Intercultura for a day long Spanish lesson. Unfortunately, as we were only in Samara for a few days, the students weren't super stoked to be spending the day learning Spanish so we only stayed for 1/2 the day. Had I been by... More

Thanks so much for writing. We hope you and your group had a fun and enriching time here in Costa Rica and with Intercultura, Sámara Language School. Most of our groups stay at least a week, so I can only imagine that it wasn't enough time! We would be happy to host your group again and welcome any more feedback... More

We've attended the language school for four years in a row and have enjoyed learning Spanish there. Excellent teachers. And Sámara is a great little town. Wonderful people. Great beach. The school, beach and town are a terrific way to spend a vacation. We'll definitely be back.
