About Flamingo Beach Beautiful beaches, fascinating national parks and a variety of activities - including world-class fishing and diving - await you around Playa Flamingo, in the Guanacaste province. At once the largest and driest province of Costa Rica, You will find open plains, dry tropical forests and the occasional Guanacaste tree, one of Costa Rica's national symbols. The Guanacaste coastal area, replete with pristine beaches and scattered mangroves, is known as the golden coast of Costa Rica. Ranging in color from ivory white to shiny volcano black. The perfect time to visit Guanacaste is, luckily enough, all year-round. The dry season offers the serious sun worshippers plenty of tanning time, while the green season sees the trees bloom with explosions of color and fragrances.

Activities and Excursions The school offers weekly free or low cost sponsored activities (Latin cooking and dance classes, afternoon soccer matches, movie nights, and visits to museums, galleries, theatres, discotheques...). In addition afternoon and weekend excursions are arranged: beach activities including: snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing expeditions, surfing, visits to nearby beaches such as Playa Tamarindo and Playa Conchal...

Our Opinion Although Playa Flamingo is a small town, it’s impossible to get bored here! A paradise of lush vegetation and crystal clear waters, Flamingo Beach is the perfect place for students to enjoy a relaxing beach side vacation while perfecting their Spanish.
