Sol Education Abroad: Heredia, Costa Rica
Heredia is located on the slopes of the Central Valley of Costa Rica. Home to a year-round spring-like climate, Heredia is aptly called the "City of Flowers". Here you will live with one of Sol Education Abroad's incredible homestays while attending classes for college-credit at the Universidad Latina de Costa Rica. The university has a beautiful campus and many activities for students to engage in. Heredia has a charming colonial central plaza and church and is home to several other prominent universities. This gives the town a youthful feel. It is also only 20 minutes by bus or train to to the capital city of San José. You will have easy access to the museums and sites the Costa Rican capital has to offer. Living and studying abroad in Heredia allows you to be in a smaller, more charming town but centrally located to have easy access to all that Costa Rica has to offer.

Heredia rests on the slopes of Poás Volcano, one of Costa Rica's most famous national parks. You will love studying abroad here!
