Academia Tica

Our partner school is situated in a very quiet area on the Calle Naciones Unidas, also known as the “calle ricos y famosos” (the street of the rich and famous) by the locals. The school is conveniently located with shops, restaurants, medical centres, pharmacies and internet cafés all nearby. The beautiful beach, Playa Jacó, is only around 10 minutes away on foot! The language school building contains 4 classrooms, a kitchen, a large covered terrace and a small swimming pool. Outside, there is a large garden that extends over 1000m2, where students can go to relax and chat with their new friends during breaks and after class. During the high season and depending on the number of participants, the school offers extra classrooms close to the main course centre.
