Welcome to CPI Spanish Inmerssion Institute
We are dedicated to offering reliable hotel-to-hotel shuttle service within Costa Rica but also have the capacity to create a diversity of itineraries to the most popular tourist destinations in our country. Choose between a variety of places and then leave it to STV to arrange your secure transfer or allow us to arrange a complete trip to the best destinations within our country. STV also offers the Jeep-Boat-Jeep transportation service between the Monteverde Cloud Forest and Arenal Volcano, a reasonably priced and quick travel option, in comparison to land (up to an hour less travel time).
A unique way of travel, affording you the experience of crossing the Arenal Lake by way of a motorized boat for the first leg of your trip, and followed by a bus up the verdant mountains to Monteverde
CPI Monteverde campus was built to be a Spanish immersion institute and continues to be maintained with tremendous care and impeccability. The school features modern, well-appointed classrooms, spacious common areas for group study and activities (cooking and dance classes), and pockets of tranquility situated among manicured gardens with brilliantly blooming tropical plants for quiet study or conversation.
When the classes conclude, the adventure awaits you! Mix the majestic with the extreme in an exciting zip-line experience through the treetops in the clouds. But that is not all! Monteverde offers a wide variety of activities, one of which is hiking through the numerous trails that meander through numerous reserves. These reserves are protected areas, and home to more than 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, tens of thousands of species of insects and more than 2,500 varieties of plants (420 of which are only orchids).
Watch birds or look for the famous Morpho butterfly from Costa Rica, which is native to the cloud forest. Other activities available include an educational coffee or cocoa tour, bungee jump diving, a yoga class, a perfect sunset over the Gulf of Nicoya on horseback, or weekend trips to the Arenal Volcano , Manuel Antonio National Park, Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, or Nicaragua.
Monteverde and the CPI campus are the perfect place for students looking to get out and explore the natural world around them. Whichever activity or adventure you choose, the CPI staff is at your service to book activities with the best tour operators and recreation professionals in the area. Complete your perfect day in the soothing waters of the CPI hot tub before you return to your host family for a typical Costa Rican meal and, of course, to practice your Spanish! Also, if you are so inclined, check out the local disco later in the evening to apply your newly acquired Latin dance skills.
