IPED – One of the leading Spanish schools in Costa Rica (website) - I can say by experience that they are a great academy to choose if you want a personal experience for teaching. The school is based in Heredia, which is a great place to study as it is not overly touristic. Normally is it best to stay with a host family to get the real ‘authentic’ way of life in Costa Rica.  An additional advantage of this is it will much faster to pick up the language as you are completely immersed in it.
