Where to Stay

WHERE TO STAY:
We rely upon many host families who love to receive students and volunteers in their house.
We know each of these families, have visited their homes and have carefully selected families and homes where we know our students and volunteers will feel good, comfortable and at home and all of them have proven to be reliable.
These families are located in the San José suburbs 10 to 20 minutes from downtown.
You can always expect a clean, well-maintained home, your room with private bathroom, closet, desk or table, good illumination and ventilation.
Also the service includes two meals per day, laundry, cleaning of your room once a week and also airport pick up upon arrival.
We recommend to stay with Costa Rican families since that will help you to practice and learn Spanish faster and also because it will give you a first-hand experience of the Costa Rican culture and daily life.
The price for staying with a host family and having 2 meals per day, laundry and airport pick up is $137 per week. If you would rather have 3 meals per day, it costs $212 per week and that price also includes laundry, cleaning and airport pick up.
Also we know some host families that have an apartment next to their house with all furniture, stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, washing machine, etc. So, if you are coming with your family or simply enjoy to have more privacy, you can let us know. This service can be without meals (you prepare your own meals) or with meals since families are next, so you can stay in the apartment and eat the meals with the family. If you want to stay in an apartment without meals, it cost $57 per week. If you want to stay in the apartment and also have 2 meals per day, it costs $167 per week, if you want the same but with 3 meals, it costs $237 per week.

Fellow students,
You just have to know about the outstanding home stays that Logos offers! I stayed with a family for over 5 weeks and had the best time with them! Their house was located just about 15 minutes outside of downtown San Jose, they had a small garden, a huge living room with cable TV, the food was excellent and I had my own very clean room and bathroom. All people treated me like family, went out with me in the evenings, assisted me whenever I needed help and even celebrated my birthday with me!
Staying with a host family is a truly outstanding experience, helps you to improve your Spanish and gives you the great opportunity to make new friends. And not to forget: if you choose to stay with a Logos host family you save big bucks! The incredible thing is that although I have never stayed in a better place it was so much cheaper than any hotel; and cheaper than the family stays with most other schools!
All the best to you; and happy studying!
