Our family of four (including two kids, 7 and 9), just returned from 2 weeks at La Mariposa. We arrived knowing only a few words of Spanish, and left able to have simple conversations, and eager to continue practicing!
I won't repeat all the wonderful...More

Thank you for this review. Yes normally we would recommend doing the hotel option first and the homestay second for precisely the reasons you mention . However sometimes we do not have sufficient availability to organise it that way round! Ear plugs are good (they...More
We just returned from a week at La Mariposa. We went for language school and the projects that La Mariposa runs in the communities, primarily with children (after school, english learning, etc). Unlike many reviewers, we aren't particularly deeply eco-conscious, but appreciated learning more of...More
I traveled to La Mariposa with 12 of my coworkers in February 2017 and can easily say that it was the trip of a lifetime. I can't think of another travel experience that was as fun, fulfilling and educational as my time at La Mariposa....More

This is Paulette, the director of La Mariposa. It is important to be clear what we are talking about! Chagas does not exist here nor has there been a case of malaria for 15 years. La Concha, population over 50,000 has had 6 confirmed cases of Zika, they are all now fully recovered. Rabies has not been seen here in many years (I have lived here 12 years and never heard of a case) and there is a government program to vaccinate all dogs free of charge. Dengue is more of an issue, there are occasional cases here so important to protect from mosquitoes. I hope some of the many families who have stayed here and loved it reply to you as well!!
