Short-term Homestay in Monteverde
Interested in supporting a family from the school and getting an in-depth look (and taste) of Costa Rican life and people? We can arrange for you to stay with a school family, including two local meals per day (breakfast and either lunch or dinner) and a free school tour.
The nightly cost is just $40/room for one adult. Extra people sharing the room cost $20 per adult or $15 per child (12 and under). Guest staying longer can pay $250/week, plus $120 per extra adult or $80 per extra child. Click here for more details.
The best part of my experience was the homestay. The family I lived with have two children that attend the school, and I loved every second of getting to know them. After school I’d often go on a hike around their family farm or play soccer with the youngest brother and his cousins. Then over dinner I’d get a chance to talk to the oldest daughter and their mother about their lives and interests and share about myself as well. Not to mention the delicious Tican meals their family provided! – Linsey, Jan. 2016
