Costa Rican and/or Yucatan Adventure

 

Designed for students interested in learning Spanish, these summer programs feature classes at the Costa Rica Spanish Institute (COSI) in San José and the Centro de Idiomas del Sureste (CIS) in Mérida, Yucatán, México. Both are outstanding academic institutions.
