CPI Monteverde - Our School in the Monteverde Cloud Forest

As breathtaking, mountain vistas and waves of white clouds welcome you to Monteverde, you'll be glad you chose to study Spanish in one of the most enchanting regions of Costa Rica.

Set nearly 5,000-ft. above the coast with a population of 5,000, Monteverde is the country's crown jewel for ecotourism and biodiversity. The relaxed rhythm of life here calms the senses, creating the perfect atmosphere to learn Spanish.



CPI’s Monteverde campus was built to be a Spanish immersion institute and continues to be maintained with tremendous care and impeccability; the school features modern, well-appointed classrooms, spacious common areas for group study and activities (cooking and dance classes), and pockets of tranquility situated among brilliantly blooming tropical plants for quiet study or conversation.



When classes conclude, adventure awaits! Mix the majestic with the extreme on a exhilarating zip line experience through the cloud canopy. Hike one of the many trails that wind through the Monteverde Nature Reserve, home to over 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, tens of thousands of insect species, and over 2,500 varieties of plants, 420 of which are orchids alone. Birdwatch or seek out Costa Rica’s famed Morpho butterfly, indigenous to the cloud forest. Watch a picture perfect sunset over the Nicoya Gulf on horseback, or take weekend trips to the Arenal Volcano, Manuel Antonio National Park, Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, or Nicaragua. 


Whatever adventure you choose, the CPI Monteverde staff is at your service to book activities with the best tour operators and recreation professionals in the area. Complete your perfect day, in the soothing waters of the CPI spa before you return to your host family for a typical meal and of course, to practice your Spanish!
