Tico Lingo


Tico Lingo was founded in 2015 as a small, high-quality language and cultural center aimed at offering the most unique and genuine Costa Rican learning experience. Since opening, we’ve taught students from over thirty different countries across the world and continue to reach new students far and wide seeking to learn the Spanish language.

Our success is based on our commitment to quality and the highest level of student service and personalization. We continuously invest in professional staff and offer custom program options to ensure each student’s overall experience with us is nothing short of excellent.

Our Professional Instructors

With experience in Costa Rica and internationally around the world, our professional Spanish instructors are the best at what they do.
