It is possible to live with a host family in Quepos, the neighboring town. Students need to ride a bus from Quepos to the school (2.5 miles). For a luxurious stay, you may want to consider staying in a hotel.
Talking with your host family provides an excellent opportunity to practice your Spanish and generate questions to bring back to your next class.
How far will my house be from the school?
Most houses are within walking distance from the school. However during June and July some students might need to ride a bus for about 15 minutes. In Manuel Antonio beach it is necessary to ride a bus to the host family.
Can I stay with my host family after I have finished taking Spanish classes?
What are the other possibilities if I do not want to stay with a host family?
There are several hotels close to COSI either in San Josť or Manuel Antonio. In San Josť, we own several apartments where you can rent a room or the entire apartment.
Can you accommodate a family of four or five?
Yes. Families are always welcome. Children should take classes in private tutoring only.
If I do not feel comfortable with my host family, can I switch to another one?
If there are any problems, we would be happy to change families for you at no extra cost.
