What our students said about Heredia

I do not recommend Heredia particularly, although I did get used to being there. The downtown area especially looks like a slum. I came home one day to find a guy sleeping on the sidewalk in front of my door. I did find a couple of good restaurants. But safety -- no. The school held an evening event at a bar two short blocks from my homestay, and it was strongly recommended that I take a taxi home. Really?!


Rating: 4/5


I think it's a good middle between the capital and then far out towns.


Rating: 5/5

My teacher, Jesús, was excellent! Seriously, one of the best teachers I've ever seen. The office staff were all friendly and helpful.
