Hi, I'm considering a week-long intensive Spanish study program in Costa Rica where I would live with a host family and go to school/class every day from 8am-1pm. The two programs I'm considering are located in Jaco and Manuel Antonio/Quepos. With the latter, I'd live with my host family in Quepos and bus to Manuel Antonio campus everyday (vs. Jaco where everything is located nearby).
I understand Jaco to be more appealing than Quepos - can anyone confirm? If that's the case, one argument is to do the program in Jaco and I can always take a trip or two to visit Manuel Antonio. BUT, if Manuel Antonio is that much better than both, I may prefer to study everyday there and be nearby?
I'm 28 years old and will be traveling by myself. While interested in nightlife/bars/etc, I want to maximize my experience and time in Costa Rica and get to experience as much as possible.
If anyone can offer advice as to which location/program might be preferred, that would be awesome! Also, the two programs I'm considering are through COSI and Academia Tica if anyone has experience/knowledge with either.
