Why intern in Costa Rica?

The lively capital of Costa Rica, San José, is the economic and cultural heart of one of the world’s top tourist destinations and most biodiverse countries. San José, Central America’s principal economic hub, is surrounded by stunning mountains and lush rainforests, and is within touching distance of both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. 

San José is the perfect place to fulfill your desire for adventure and live the “Pura vida” lifestyle. The inhabitants of Costa Rica, Los Ticos, are famous for being some of the happiest people in the world. It’s time to discover why and experience Costa Rica’s magic for yourself.
