Thanks so much for your review. It's great to get feedback about our Spanish Camp for Kids and Teens year-round program. We're happy to hear that you had fun while learning Spanish. I love the hammocks and the iguanas too!

Loved the language school. You're tested to see what level you're at and then go to classes with the same teacher each day. Some days we actually went out to the beach to have class. There was food there you could buy, they had computers...More

I spent a week at this campus learning Spanish. I would like to thank Laura, the Director of the school, and of her administrative staff, and especially Jeanette, my Spanish instructor. It was an excellent experience that I will never forget. Julie from Wisconsin

Hi there!! I'm looking for a spanish immersion program to do for 6-8 weeks this summer. I see most reviews are for people that spent less than 3 weeks here. Do people do longer programs as well? Do people find there is enough to do in the area to stay engaged for 6-8 weeks?
