Before we moved to Costa Rica, we began preparing to learn Spanish. Although, you can get by here (at least in most of the bigger cities) without being fluent, you will probably enjoy yourself more and have less frustrations, if you can speak some Spanish. At least enough to understand how to shop, take the bus and ask for directions.
We met Jesse Feliz in Puerto Viejo in 2015 while on our Costa Rica due diligence tour (we met her very close to the location of the Ghetto Girl Soda pictured above). We took classes from her when we returned to the states. She makes learning Spanish fun. Jesse is now offering her classes online and you can sign up for them by contacting her.
The 1st class starts on 2/10.
Here's a little info from Jesse about classes! Check her out and tell her I sent you!
