Home Base Facilities & Support

Maximo Nivel offers you great home base facilities. Our institutes are designed with the needs of our students and clients in mind. Every Maximo institute has large common areas, free WiFi, computer lounges, and an on-site snack bar with free coffee and tea.

All program participants receive 24/7 support from our bilingual team. We’re there for you throughout your program to help you navigate life abroad—inside and outside the classroom. As experts on Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru, the Maximo Nivel team can answer any questions you have. Travel plans are easy to arrange through our on-site travel partner in each country.

It’s not just Spanish

At Maximo Nivel, our institutes include international travelers taking part in our Spanish, Volunteer, Internship, and TEFL programs. As well, our local Costa Rican, Guatemalan, and Peruvian students who study in our Native English Program make the institutes come alive with an international-meets-local vibe—Maximo is very unique next to any regular Spanish school.

Earn Spanish University Credit

Looking to receive credit for your study abroad experience? We’ve got you covered. University credit is available for Maximo Nivel’s Spanish programs and most courses can be completed in as little as 3 weeks!

Our official School of Record, offers university credit for Maximo Nivel’s Spanish programs. Earn college credit to fulfill major, minor or elective requirements at your home university. You can even add a Volunteer Abroad component to your program and receive credit for that too!

Alternatively, we work directly with your home university to help you get credit for your Spanish course.

For our German students, Maximo Nivel is Bilidungsurlaub approved. Very few Spanish schools can claim this prestigious German government recognition.

If you’re not a university student—or German— it’s still nice to know someone else thinks Maximo’s programs are good enough to stake their reputation on them.

Just sign up and we guide you through the whole process.

Maximo Nivel has a variety of programs tailored to your specific learning requirements. From small groups to private 1-on-1 instruction, we have classes that cover a broad range of material, from basic and advanced grammar, to conversation, and advanced culture courses. The whole idea is to make sure you reach your Spanish language goals!

Online Spanish

Learn Spanish Online

If you want to study before arriving in-country or if you want to continue studying once you’ve left—Online Spanish is the perfect option for you! Online classes via Skype are a great way to brush up before traveling or maintain what you’ve learned abroad.

What to Expect

What to expect from our Spanish Programs

Everyone has different ideas of what their program should be and Maximo Nivel makes sure your needs are met. In class, you can count on our teachers to get you speaking on Day 1; outside of the classroom, you can count on our complete support and lots of opportunities to immerse yourself in the local culture.

Tandem Conversation Program

Tandem Exchange

At every Maximo Nivel, we offer both our Native Spanish Program for international learners and our Native English Program for local students. These programs bring locals and foreigners together and create natural interaction on a daily basis. Our Tandem Conversation Program matches up native English speakers with native Spanish speakers for free conversation practice outside of class. This gives you a unique advantage when it comes to learning another language—easy access to native speakers!

Summer Spanish Camp

Summer Spanish Camp

Our Spanish Camp is the perfect program for high school students looking for a study abroad experience during summer break. We run our Spanish Camp in Costa Rica every year. You can choose from programs based in the capital city of San Jose or on the Pacific coast in Manuel Antonio.

Program Fees


Spanish program fees depend on location, number of hours, type of classes, and how long you plan to study. Maximo Nivel is one of the most affordable Spanish immersion programs available, and we offer the highest level of client service—we’re happy to prove it to you!

Note that Maximo Nivel never charges a registration fee. Our pricing is very easy and transparent—in fact, you’re more likely to get a discount or a free add-on.
