Each Project Costa Rica Community Service participant selects one of the following activities as an afternoon elective. Each elective operates for three afternoons per week. The other two weekdays are spent doing fun activities in the surrounding area.
All of our electives are held on the campus of El Colegio Agropecuario San Carlos, a highly respected private school located outside of La Fortuna. Fees paid by Rein Community Service for instructors and facility rentals help to support scholarships for students throughout Costa Rica who would like to attend the school but cannot afford the tuition.
Whether you are just beginning to speak Spanish or are already an intermediate or advanced speaker, our Spanish class is right for you.
