I would like to tour Costa Rica for about 3 months, as a mature woman who wishes to learn Spanish. I would prefer to have a room and board type of accommodation so that I could learn Spanish at school and stay with a family. It is my hope to tour the country while learning the language, customs, culture of the country. Any suggestions on where I might get information on Spanish Language schools/classes and room and board, preferably with a family, and any other issues that I should consider prior to leaving in January, 2005 would be very much appreciated.

Here's a link I found on the web.

If you haven't seen this, read this article about leaving in Costa Rica. Will no doubt excite you, though may make you question about eating the brocolli.

Katey, if all else fail try to find on the web the homepage of an International Womens Club in Costa Rica. It is a great bunch, dominated by English speakers. they know a lot. One of the women I met there, Katya de Luiza (if I spell it correctly from memory) offers lodging and help to people who are moving to Costa Rica. She lives in the Valley in a nice suburb to San Jose.
