HELP MAKING DECISION CELTA?

Hi!

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of my options.

I was just accepted to the IH Chiang Mai CELTA course in Thailand. It is quite costly and I am a 30 something with limited funds. I also have an MS IN elementary ed and I am certified in the US.

I'd like to eventually teach long term in Costa Rica.

When I inquired with one teachers placement agency in COSTA RICA I was told that a CELTA is unnecessary and I should take a very inexpensive online TEFL COURSE and that the schools are very particular in which cert. I hold.

I am striving towards a career in an international school.

Am I kidding myself that getting this CELTA thst with travel will cost be close to $5,000 will be worth it in the long run?

Thank you for any input...I need to make a decision pretty soon.
