DSC_0626.jpgThe school is a high quality educational institution located in the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, immersed in the community of Manuel Antonio, just four miles south from Quepos.

Quepos, one of the main districts of the province of Puntarenas and a former banana plantation, has become a worldly famous town by sport fishing enthusiasts.  With the remaining of a sleepy fisherman's town, you can still feel the southern dusty hidden appeal, flowered with all sorts of cultural experiences, including learning Spanish in one of the most prestigious schools of Spanish.

The blue water of this coast provides exceptional challenge and excitement for seasoned, as well as occasional angles.  International bill fishing tournaments in these waters routinely tie and break world records.
