A gem of Central America, Costa Rica is a marvel of nature and an oasis of tranquility. With only 4 million inhabitants, much of Costa Rica's territory is protected. Along the Pacific coast, you'll find magnificent sandy beaches, while the lush rainforest offers numerous opportunities for hikes. You can observe monkeys, sloths, iguanas, as well as beautiful flowers and rare plants. Whether you're a surfer, an adventurer, or a nature lover, you'll find what you're looking for during a linguistic stay in Costa Rica. Only 1% of the population is indigenous, while the rest is a mix of whites and mestizos. Afro-Caribbean culture is highly present, especially in music, dance, and cuisine.
