  • No doubt, those who are "UCR" will be life, only those who live in this stage can know how good that is to be in the best University of the country, as well as experiences, the campus offers areas for recreation and do sports, extensive facilities and others... I recommend 200%...

  • I traveled to Costa Rica this summer to sturdy abroad and improve my Spanish. During my two month stay, I studied Spanish at the Universidad de Costa Rica. I cannot express enough how much this place has changed my life forever. I will, for the rest of my life, live with a 'pura vida' mentality. All the amazing women at this school were some of the most influential people I have ever met and I am forever changed because of them.
  • The best uni in CR but with very small and hot classrooms. The food from the cafeteria in Generales, Derecho, Comedor Estudiantil, Letras sucks because of it's low quality although it's cheap.
  • One of the best Universities of Costa Rica
  • Good university guys!
