What our students said about Jaco Beach

Rating: 5/5


Night life is very popular. The beach is ok, but there are nicer ones. It is difficult to swim in the sea, but good to surf (waves). It's very hot in Jacó Beach! (In June, by all means)

The teachers are always in a good mood, there is always a great atmosphere in the school and although the lessons are sometimes relaxed you learn a lot. The afternoon trips are very expensive, but the free cooking classes were great.

They have very small group classes to ensure you are learning at the appropriate level. This was really great and made me feel like I was really getting what I needed from the course. Also, everyone was super nice. :)
