Jaco is known for many things. Along with lively nightlife and fantastic surf spots, tucked away about five blocks from downtown is a hidden treasure, known as Escuela del Mundo. As you enter the gates to the school, you will immediately notice the amazing architecture and the exotic plants that hug each side of the building. Welcome to Escuela del Mundo! You will kindly be greeted by a welcoming staff and a friendly cat by the name of Jasper. The school easily ushers in the “pura vida” motto of Costa Rica, with the open and very Zen-like kitchen. The school made it very easy to make Escuela del Mundo your home away from home.
At the school you are surrounded by flora and fauna even inside of the school. Whenever you’re not admiring the wildlife, or venturing to a nearby Soda for some delicious local cooking, the School of the World has some phenomenal classes taught by some of the best teachers in Costa Rica. While you’re enrolled in your Spanish class, you also can take classes like surfing, yoga and photography. All three harvest the laid back code of Costa Rica, and bring you to a whole new world. While embracing local routines like going to fruit stands or taking a taxi to a nearby beach, you are also given a chance to interact with locals to widen your horizons and learn the land. School of the World is a relaxing and peaceful learning environment that is an opportunity of a lifetime.
