Often students ask about their host family prior to arrival. Due to our attempts to make a good match between students and families, we do not finalize placements until a few days before the student arrives. At that point you will receive a message from the Student Coordinator of your first CPI campus
Living with a local family offers a unique window into the culture which only a small portion of travelers abroad have the fortune to experience. Additionally, the constant contact with the Spanish language ensures you are maximizing the opportunities to achieve your linguistic goals. The particular advantage of living with a host family in Costa Rica is the best treasure the country offers – Costa Ricans – who are consistently characterized as being kind hearted people who consistently seek to make visitors feel welcome.
