Learning Spanish at El Marañón

Hola, como estas? - Pura Vida!
In the very personal atmosphere of the Guesthouse EL MARAÑON, learning Spanish is great fun. Everybody can join in and individual requirements are easily catered for, because the groups are small. Classes are held outside in the wooden pavilion, so during the breaks you can stroll around the tropical gardens, watch the humming birds in action or help yourself to some mango fruit. We timetable the classes in such a way as to ensure that you have plenty of opportunity to explore San José and the Central Valley or to relax in a hammock, if the fancy takes you.

Hasta Luego!
