Maximo Nivel is a leading intercultural institute in Latin America. Since 2003, we have offered international education programs in Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We are a local organization in each country and we're an important part of the communities where we're based. In addition to our ESL and Spanish language programs, we offer educational travel and study abroad programs including International Internships, TEFL Certification, and Volunteer Abroad. We are currently searching for a strong, goal-oriented, and positive Director of National Programs.
