costa ricaWe appreciate your interest on the exciting programs that we offer. The Center for Cultural Interaction (CCI) is a Costa Rican agency that offers you the opportunity to learn Spanish and immerse in the culture of this vibrant Central American country.  We provide each participant with friendly advice and a great deal of personal attention and we make our guests feel comfortable and at ease and strive to show them the real Costa Rica.

We offer short and long cultural immersion programs. We can help to land professional internships in your field of studies, and provide volunteer opportunities in the city or in rural areas.  We can  arrange visits to local businesses and help you arrange appointments and interviews with universities and faculty personnel in the area of your specialization.

  • Airport pickup
  • Home stay with a Costa Rican family in the beautiful town of San Isidro de Heredia
  • 3 daily meals and laundry 
  • Visits to cultural sites for total language immersion
  • Orientation session (cultural aspects and personal safety)

We welcome participants from all professional backgrounds and ages. Our participants learn the Spanish language, live with Costa Rican families and travel to exciting places and experience this country — just as it really is.
