1 Make sure of the conditions of accommodation. I chose to learn Spanish - school doesn't guarantee this language
Other comments
No help from the school, without commitment, lots of harshness. Hardly ever speaking in Spanish. Frequent changes in teachers. This is a school for young people who came to enjoy themselves.

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.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
We were at the school/hostel in Boquete and Turrialba as well. The school in Turrialba should not be missed, just heavenly. And you can do so many cool things here.

It would work better if you would have x number of words to learn each day.
