Study in San José and Manuel Antonio

Located in Costa Rica’s Central Valley, San José has a spring-like climate year-round and is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Central America, with vibrant neighborhoods, great restaurants, pedestrian shopping streets, and distinctive architecture, ranging from stately residences and impressive theaters to elegant squares and parks. A short distance away are spectacular natural wonders, including volcanoes and rain forests. 

Manuel Antonio, set high above an enchanting national park, has world-class views and beaches. Students can enjoy a variety of activities, including swimming, hiking, kayaking, white-water rafting, and parasailing.

The group will be accompanied by a full-time faculty member from Wayne State College. Faculty will be responsible for the academic component (supervising local instruction, grading, instructing, etc.) as well as the logistics of the program (transportation, classrooms, housing, field trips, etc.).
