Weekly Activities

Everyday Monday through Friday Tico Lingo offers activities for students to get to know each other, experience different aspects of Costa Rican culture, and gain opportunities to practice Spanish outside of the classroom. Each activity is offered at least once a week and can be signed-up for upon arrival. Simply write your name on the whiteboard and you’re signed up!

Heredia Walking Tour

Join us for a 2.5-hour walking tour of Heredia! We’ll uncover the secrets of this vibrant city, exploring its historic landmarks and hidden gems. You’ll have the chance to exchange currency for colones, visit some of the city’s most beautiful parks, and even discover the best spots for a quick coffee or a delicious Costa Rican lunch. 

Latin Dance Class

One of the most fun and energetic ways to experience Latin American culture is through dance. During this 1-hour class, you will get an introduction to the basic steps of popular Latin dances such as Cumbia, Salsa and Bachata. This activity is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and is the perfect way to get your blood pumping after a morning in the classroom.

Yoga & Pilates Class

Unwind after your Spanish class with an hour of yoga or pilates at Tico Lingo’s onsite studio. We offer vinyasa and meditative yoga practices focusing on strength, flexibility, and relaxation as well as a strength building pilates class. Suitable for all levels, these classes aim to leave you feeling calm and refreshed. Bring your own mat, or use one of ours!

Lunch with Yami

Join Tico Lingo’s “abuela” Yami (jah-mee) for this fun introduction to Costa Rican cuisine. Enjoy lunch with fellow Tico Lingo students and get an opportunity to try many different home-cooked Costa Rican dishes made to order right at Tico Lingo. 


Held at either Tico Lingo or at a local bar/restaurant called “La Fortina”, this free activity invites you to practice your conversational Spanish skills with some locals in Heredia who are learning English. It’s a great opportunity to meet new local Ticos (Costa Ricans), help them with their English, and practice your conversational Spanish in a relaxed atmosphere.
