Accomodations

Maximo offers excellent housing options in Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru, including traditional family-stays, student residences, apartments, hostels, and hotels.

Family-Stay

Family-stays are all with approved host families who have been working with Maximo Nivel for years. Family-stays include a shared room with a shared bath. Private rooms and bathrooms are available for an additional charge, but availability is limited. Guests are free to come and go as they please, but you should always respect the routine and rules of the family.

In shared rooms, you are grouped with people of the same gender and approximate age. Comfortable beds, electricity, and hot showers are provided. Most family-stays do not have WiFi, but free WiFi and computer labs are available at Maximo Nivel.

Family-stays include breakfast and dinner 7 days/week. Our host families are very accustomed to hosting international guests and most families are happy to cook vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free meals. Please understand, however, that we cannot accommodate every kind of diet. When registering you must let us know about any dietary restrictions you have.

All family-stays are within a 10-20 minute walk or 5-10 minute taxi/bus ride from Maximo Nivel.
