WAYRA offers different Spanish programs including the Spanish&Surf package, medical Spanish, intensive or private classes and even a special children program. The school is accredited by the Instiituto Cervantes in Spain and is also a DELE examination center.
WAYRA has many years of experience teaching Spanish as a second language; it is actually the oldest Spanish school in the whole province of Guanacaste.
Classes run usually for 4 hours a day from Monday to Friday. The rest of the day, the students go usually to the beach and enjoy the free time surfing, relaxing, swimming or doing homeworks. Twice a week, we organize free activities like latin dance classes, cooking classes, sunset watching, volleyball or soccer at the beach and many more.
On the weekend our students have the possibility to visit nearby nationalparks such as Arenal, Monteverde, Rincón de la Vieja etc.
