Homestays in Costa Rica are typically paired with either language courses or volunteering. During a homestay, you will live with a local Costa Rican family. Your host family will provide you with sleeping quarters, bathroom access, and usually three meals a day. The real benefit of a homestay, however, is in your daily interaction with the family. While talking with the various family members, you’ll learn about the foundation of life in Costa Rica. For this reason, homestays are a great option for travelers interested in practicing Spanish or learning about Costa Rican culture.
