Costa Rica Intern

For years, expats and foreigners have flocked to Costa Rica for its beautiful scenery and unique work culture. The booming tourism industry in San Jose has turned it into a popular destination for travelers from around the world and made it into an incredibly diverse city. Global Experiences’ internship program in San Jose allows you to experience everything about the culture of Costa Rica all while gaining valuable career experience with a tailored internship.

San Jose is a city full of art, awe-inspiring architecture, and bustling commerce. The Capital City of Costa Rica is known as one of the main focal points of political and economic activity in all of Central America. In terms of population, the city is relativity small, but nearly a million people commute to the center of the city every weekday to work in the many thriving industries of San Jose. Some of the most popular internship placements include business, environmental, engineering, NGOs, and many more.

In San Jose, going with the flow is the norm. The popular national saying “Pura Vida” means “pure life” and that’s the way Costa Ricans like to live. Locals value personal relationships and treating others with respect. Giving gifts is also an important aspect of the culture. During the summer, there is always a reason or holiday to celebrate.

Global Experiences provides you with a tailored internship in your approved career field. Your tuition also covers centrally located accommodations and social events. Throughout your program, we take you and your fellow interns on social excursions to allow you to experience San Jose and the local culture. You will also have free time during your program to travel on your own. Set yourself apart from your peers with an international internship in Costa Rica.
 


Bentley students are eligible for Global Experience's 8-week summer internship program. Students may elect to participate in an online seminar course alongside their internship which carries an extra fee and is worth 3 credits.
