Since we sell properties in Costa Rica to local buyers as well as foreigners, GoDutch Realty offers an extensive and very detailed list of International private schools, colleges and language institutes to make your move to Costa Rica easier.

Costa Rica is well known for its excellence in education. The reason for this is that since Costa Rica doesn’t have an army since 1948, most of the money that Latin American would usually spend on weapons, in Costa Rica they spent it on education of their children. That is the main reason why the Costa Rican economy, even in a world crisis does very well and many foreign companies are moving their operations to Costa Rica.

Many people choose to learn Spanish in Costa Rica because it means learning a language while having a good time. If you plan to move to Costa Rica you need to take at least a basic Spanish course to get the basics and practice will get you quite a bit further. There are sufficient options to learn Spanish in Costa Rica.
