Where can I find a good Spanish language immersion program? (Ideally in a Spanish-speaking country.)

In the past I have debated moving to Spain with the goals of A) having an international living experience and B) improving my Spanish to the point of being conversational. However, I have learned it is difficult to get a work visa so I have begun exploring language immersion programs, instead. And I have a few questions.
1) Should I do this in Spain, or some other spanish-speaking country?
Some thoughts: I am very eager to have easy access to visit other European countries, in addition to just liking Spain itself, so Spain is my preference by far. But I am concerned that anywhere in Europe may be cost prohibitive. (Central or South America might be more cost-effective, no?)
2) City v. small town?
3) How do I find the *reputable* ones?
4) Are there programs that cater to specific age groups? (I'm in my mid-20s.)
5) Do they typically help with your social life, too?
And just in general, ignoring everything else I've asked, if you have any recommendations for programs that can offer a great experience, or if there are resources I should be tapping into, please tell me about it! I am new to this.
Muchas gracias! :)
