• "Other Students should study in Costa Rica because it is not only a beautiful place to explore but it has so many great opportunities in term of business, education, and you get to say Pura Vida as often as you want!"

  • "Costa Rica is a beautiful country with happy and friendly people and beautiful nature. If you want a different experience from other study abroad, choose Costa Rica. You won’t regret it for sure. You should just go experience yourself rather than listening to my words. You will understand why. I loved how friendly Costa Ricans are. My host family, friends and teachers at ULACIT were very pura vida!"

  • "Other than being able to experience a country with so much natural beauty, it’s a great way to experience different cultures in a fun environment. I was in Costa Rica for nine days, and while that’s a short time, I have memories from the trip that my classmates and me still talk about. Studying abroad is also a great way to meet new people and become better friends with your classmates that you go on the trip with. To this day, my classmates and I still hang out and became very close in such a short amount of time. Studying abroad is a time for you to enjoy your college experience, learn some things about your track of study and different cultures while building lasting relationships. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss out on but each one has a different experience and it’s up to you to make the most of your time there. "

  • "I chose ULACIT because it offers classes in Spanish and English and they are the number one private university few years consecutively. The most important thing I learned from my experience is that you will meet a lot of great people, make really good friends and make you a better person since you get to experience different cultures, see how they live, what they do and notice everything is not the same for everyone. I encourage people to travel to Costa Rica because the country has a lot to offer from the cities to small towns. It has everything you want: beaches, volcanoes, natural parks, animals you won’t find in other countries, and of course, we can't forget about its people: They are caring, friendly, honest, and make you feel like you’re home.
