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.
