We provide professional internships in almost all business areas and industry sectors in Costa Rica. Internship placements in Costa Rica are especially demanded in the tourism and social sector. We place you in a wide variety of companies, enterprises, institutions and organizations. Typically, we cooperate with local companies. All companies are located in Costa Rica’s capital, San José, and can be easily reached by public transportation. The company itself defines your working hours during the internship.

Usually, the internships in Costa Rica are full-time positions. The decision of whether or not the internship is paid is up to the respective company, however, please keep in mind that internships in Costa Rica are usually unpaid work experiences. Due to local economic and social reasons, it is often not possible to pay a salary to interns although some companies reward outstanding performances with non-monetary benefits, such as food vouchers, transportation expenses, or excursions.

You can decide how long you want to do your internship in Costa Rica according to your personal schedule. In doing so, please keep in mind that we ask for a minimum stay of 8 weeks for the internship in San José. This is to assure you have enough time to become familiar with the language and to adjust to your intern position and daily tasks. Unlike most internship programs, our internships in Costa Rica are tailor-made to your needs and preferences. You tell us the work field you are looking to intern in, the duration, and any other important criteria that must be met. Our job is to arrange the internship accordingly.
