Additional information
Other comments: I also stayed at the schools in Boquete and Turrialba. Everything was really great. The rooms are very large (for 10$ /night) and clean. The accommodations are very nice, spacious and well equipped. Even with a nice garden. They were the best hostels I've seen during the two months I stayed in Central America.
The family atmosphere at school was really great. Also, the classes and the teachers are really amazing.
