Accommodation in Costa Rica

Our Spanish courses in Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica include several choices of lodging.

Or, opt to live in a triple room in our EF International House, located onsite at our EF school. Both living options are included in the package price of the course. The EF International House and school were once a beach-town hotel, now renovated and just five minutes from the commercial area and the beach. The residence is equipped with air-conditioned twin/triple rooms in spacious apartments, all with bathroom, kitchen and terrace or patio. Twin and single rooms are available in neighboring Casa Eleri. Meals are self-catering. An onsite pool and well-equipped cafeteria round off EF Tamarindo’s excellent amenities.
