“The immersion experience is the laboratory where the language learner can apply what they practice in class”

Our credit-bearing programs are sponsored by U.S. colleges and universities, but we alsooffer customized programs for people not seeking university credits: for high school students and for people of all ages.

For over 30 years our goal has been to provide students and program participants with safe and tranquil locations  that reveal the real Costa Rica and its people and make our participants  feel relaxed and at home.

In addition to fulfilling study abroad requirements at the university level, Costa Rica Study Abroad (CRSA) specializes in offering Spanish immersion programs and a complete cultural experience in unique and fun ways.


And, it's not all just work either!

It's hard to learn if it's not fun! So we make sure you have time to travel, interact with the community and with your host familywhile enjoying the beautiful sights our country offers.

Ecologically rich Costa Rica is known worldwide for its incredible beaches, majestic mountains, and very friendly people.
