Live the Osa'smission is to create opportunities and connections for cultural and language immersion in Costa Rica. Whether you stay for one week or three months, we guarantee you will not feel like a tourist. Our programs are based on a strong philosophy of cross-cultural principles, including mutual respect, sustainability, self-awareness, community service and education. Interns, teachers, students and families will improve their Spanish, learn about a new culture, and immerse themselves into the Costa Rican way of life by living with a local family and giving back through an internship serving the greater Osa community.

"My Osa family really made me feel at home and part of their life. I would highly recommend Live the Osa to anyone looking for a true Costa Rican experience."

"The trip truly stands out as the best 4 weeks of my life. I know the friendships I formed with the host family and my internship hosts, not to mention those with other locals whom I simply met along the way, will last forever. That said, it's the people and community I appreciated most...not just the monkeys and scarlet macaws flying overhead. I don't just want to return one day, I have to! Gracias por todo El Ceibo. Pura vida por siempre esta en mi corazon."
