The Best

The staff, the location, the programs, all of it was great. They have plans to expand into a volunteer animal rescue program. They are very forward thinking.

After reading all the wonderful reviews, I decided to come to la escula de sol (LEDS) for my first solo international trip. I was the most expensive of all the places I looked at, but the reviews were so good, how could I resist? (So after I wrote my review I realized it a little long. Skip to the last... More

Hi Jessica, I'm so glad you enjoyed your classes so much. I too think our teachers are incredible people and great at what they do. I also think it's unfortunate that you were unhappy with our transitional location (which is a beautiful house with a pool and yard in a quiet, authentically Tico neighborhood) and especially that you still feel...

LOVED LA ESCUELA! Gabriel, Dennis, and Jeremy were so helpful and Wendy was a great teacher. The yoga classes were also awesome. I signed up for three weeks at the school but only ended up staying for two ONLY because I wanted to see the rest of the country. I am a skeptic with a lot of things I do,... More

Decided to do something different for travel this year and headed down to LEDS in Costa Rica for a week of Surfing and Yoga ( I have never done either). Wow! I should have come sooner! The location is great! Jeremy and his team made sure everything went super-smooth. We made friends quickly with other students and did many activities... More

We have been fire students and performers for years now and always learn a few new tricks from Eli and the other staff when we are in Montezuma. Classes are at your own pace and Eli is a great teacher. Thanks guys!

Hi, my wife spent 4 weeks at La Escuela taking a combination of spanish, yoga and poi. I spent almost 3 weeks there too. I can't say enough about how wonderful of a job they did. The hotel is extremely convenient, take a few steps and you in the middle of the main street. The restaurants are excellent and close... More

Absolutely loved my two weeks here. Gabriel and Dennis at reception were easily the best concierge I've seen at any hotel. Wendy's Spanish classes were amazing! Randall got me surfing! And both yoga teachers even got me to enjoy yoga. If you are on the fence about going to LEDS let me just say you need to stop thinking and... More

i can't say enough about my two week experience at LEDS. I felt completely safe and comfortable and I met incredible people from all over the world. The Spanish classes were a lot of fun and I learned yoga in the open air gathering room to the beautiful sounds of the Montezuma jungle. I hope to return some day to... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful time at this school. We took 3-4 hours of Spanish lessons a day and took yoga classes in the evening. All the teachers were wonderful. We loved our Spanish teachers and our yoga instructors. The hotel that houses the school is clean and nice. The school and hotel staff are wonderful. Kudos to... More

La escuela del sol was everything I had hoped it would be and more. With an electric mix of classes available I'm sure everyone could find something that intrigues them to learn and the staff are very knowledgeable about other excursions. The rooms were so clean and comfortable and the electronic safe was great for keeping valuables safe without worrying... More
