Tico Lingo Complete Pricing Guide

At Tico Lingo, we believe in absolute transparency. Forget about hidden fees – there’s no charge for registration, workbooks, writing materials, or credit card transactions. What you see is what you pay.

All our program and housing prices are conveniently listed in $USD. and payments are done securely online via debit/credit card. To secure your program, a 35% deposit is required, fully refundable up to 4 weeks before your program begins.

Once your deposit is confirmed, we’ll provide details about your homestay family (if part of your program) and schedule your Spanish oral exam. The outstanding balance for your program isn’t due until you’ve started your program with us.
