Because it is so tropical, the plants, flowers, and beaches are some of the most beautiful and unique in Latin America. The population is mostly descended from Spaniards, with African, Indigenous and Chinese minorities.

Costa Rica is world famous for drawing tourists from all over the world to admire and enjoy its tropical beauty. It is a country actively engaged in wildlife conversation and allows Enforex students to explore the tropics with minimal damage. Mostly coastline, Costa Rica offers students some of the best beaches and surfing in the region.

The province of Heredia has a comfortable climate year round. Due to the altitude, nighttime temperatures of about 18 °C (64 °F) are quite common in San Joaquín, so it is recommended to bring a jacket or a sweater. During the rainy season, (May-December) it often rains in the afternoon so an umbrella and/or a light raincoat are essential. During the dry season, umbrellas and raincoats are not needed.

Enforex Heredia

The school, founded in 1991, is located in San Joaquín de Flores. San Joaquín, a suburb of Heredia, is popular among those who wish to be away from the traffic, pollution and tension of the city, yet still want the advantage of easy access to Costa Rica's capital. Excellent bus service provides transportation from San Joaquín to both Heredia and San José.

An additional advantage of San Joaquín is the opportunity to gain an increased insight into Costa Rican culture in a town that is typically "Tico".
