Flamingo Beach is a comfortable town of about 32,000 inhabitants set on Costa Rica's Pacific coast. It's a veritable eco-wonderland of crystalline waters and lush vegetation, which makes it an ideal study abroad destination. It's the perfect mix of learning Spanish and enjoying a relaxing, beachside vacation!
The surprisingly few tourists hitting up mean that you can take full advantage of an authentic, personalized experience with Costa Rica's culture and language. Plus, with watersports, canopy tours, horseback-riding, hiking, boat safaris and more, there is certainly no shortage of things to do!
Another aspect that guarantees you’ll be immersed in the lifestyle and culture is our home stay program. Our participating families are located in typical nearby towns, such as Potrero, Lajas, Brasilito and Huacas.
Located right along the waterfront and looking out over the marina, our Enforex partner school in Flamingo Beach is a fully-equipped school just at the entrance to the town.
Facilities include: 26 classrooms, kitchen, garden area, common room, video room, library, hammock area, movie/ AV room, small basketball court and a pool complete with a patio and showers.
Minimum age to study abroad in Flamingo Beach: 14 years old for adult programs & 6 years old for children's programs.
