Turrialba, Cartago, Costa Rica

Spanish at Location (Spanish by the River)

The school Oasis of peace, Outside, View volcano from the porch, Coffee, Adventures
Spanish by the River - Turrialba, founded June 2002, is located a little outside of the typically "Tico" town of Turrialba. In the center you can find a few hotels, some restaurants, (pool) bars, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, discos, a cinema, swimming pools, banks, internet cafés, a post office and gyms. When coming from San José, 10 minutes before entering town, you take a left into "Barrio El Recreo" to enter the "Entrada de Chirraca" and arrive at an oasis of peace and therefore a great place to study and relax. At 850 meters, it seems a little less hot and more "tranquilo" than in downtown Turrialba. Classes are mostly held outside, in one of the little huts or on the roomy porch, from where you have a beautiful view of the volcano and the lush, green surroundings. You can spot exotic birds like toucans, hummingbirds, and other tropical species while attending classes. During breaks we serve delicious coffee from the surrounding highlands and some tropical fruits. If you want to stretch your legs, you can walk down the street in front of the school and maybe see some leafcutter ants coming by or even a sloth! The school is starting its own organic farming project and you are welcome to have a look.

The school in Turrialba is perfect for adventurous people that love to learn about different cultures, ecosystems and tropical farming. It is not for people that wish to go out each night in a cool, trendy discotheque. The people in Turrialba love to go out for some drinks and salsa dancing on the weekends but generally not during weekdays.
