Since the beginning of Maximo Nivel in 2003, the safety of our programs, participants, and team has always been our highest priority. All our decisions regarding the choice of programs, locations, and activity planning has always reflected that commitment to everyone’s safety.

Clearly, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has generated a heightened level of public anxiety. It is important to follow official announcements and to help make sure misinformation and rumors are not spread. While the risks should not be dismissed, they should not be exaggerated either.

Maximo Nivel is a locally-based organization in Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. As such, we are optimally situated to monitor the situation in each country. Our institutes will remain open as a home-base for all students, clients, and other program participants for as long we are allowed. Please consider the Maximo Nivel institutes your home-base where you can always use free WiFi, computer lab, enjoy free coffee and tea, and get ongoing updates about Coronavirus (COVID-19) in English and Spanish. In the case of a mandated quarantine, our local teams will remain in contact with all participants via telephone and email.
