Program Prices and Fees

Tico Lingo Complete Pricing Guide

Tico Lingo prides itself in being clear and transparent. We do not charge fees for registration, workbooks, materials, or credit cards. There are absolutely zero hidden program fees whatsoever.

All prices are in USD$ and all payments are completed securely online using a debit or credit card. To register, we ask for a 35% deposit which is fully refundable up to 4 weeks before the start of your program. Once your deposit is received, we’ll send you details on the homestay you’ve been placed with (if part of your program) as well as set a time for you to complete your Spanish oral exam. Upon arrival to Costa Rica, the outstanding balance will be due.
