On the first day of class we offer a student orientation designed to ease your transition into the Costa Rican culture. During this session we discuss important details, such as: what you can expect in your homestay, safety precautions, how to use local transportation, in addition to information on inter-campus transfer options for our students who choose to visit more than one campus. We also discuss topics related to CPI, including services provided by the school along with your daily schedule. The orientation supplements the welcome packet you will receive when you arrive.
A vital question, as advanced preparation is key to any positive travel experience! Costa Rica is a serene country, committed to upholding its history of peace and diplomacy. Also, since the nation depends greatly on tourism from the United States, Canada, and Europe, visitors are warmly welcomed with respect and kindness. However, travelers should always use common sense and best judgment, especially when visiting major cities.
