    Academia Tica

    The language school Academia Tica was founded in San Jose, Costa Rica in 1986. The school is located in Coronado, an authentic typical small Costa Rican town just outside the capital city of San José and a step away from one of the most important Cloud forests in Central America: the Braulio Carrillo National Park. Here, students have many opportunities to practice since the town is non-touristic and a quiet beautiful environment halfway between the jungle and the city. The ease of access to the city brings opportunities for getting to know Costa Rica's cultural and history plus it's the transportation hub from where to start all the travels to discover the beautiful places the country has to offer.

    The school address is: Quinta Toyopán, San Rafel de Coronado, 11102 - San Jose (Costa Rica).
