CPI Monteverde

(40 ratings)

The Centre Panamericano de Idiomas (CPI) offers high quality Spanish courses in the breathtaking mountain town of Monteverde. Once a month, the school holds a special “cultural weekend” and throughout their studies, students are offered a range of activities for their free time.

CPI has three schools in Costa Rica that follow the same teaching methods. You can take Spanish lessons in different towns but, as all of your classes are with CPI schools, you only have to pay the registration fee once. Why not start your Spanish course in Monteverde and then continue in Playa Flamingo or Heredia? This is just what Nadja Purtschert, a Swiss Olympic snowboarder, did during her trip to Costa Rica with Yalea. Find our more about Nadja's experience here.

The Monteverde school is a fifteen minute walk from the centre of Santa Elena. The modern school building is spread over two floors and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. All CPI teachers have a university diploma and, on average, two years of experience teaching Spanish.

The CPI team organizes a daily activity program including nature walks and dancing and cooking lessons. Some of these activities are free and others are offered at a reduced price. The CPI staff can also assist you to plan your own activities and weekend excursions, if you wish.
