If you like snorkelling, sunbathing, scuba diving or whale watching, then you’ll love Puerto Vallarta in Mexico!
Learn Spanish in Puerto Vallarta, and you’ll be studying on the famous Mexican Riviera, on the Pacific Coast. With 300 days’ sunshine a year, great nightlife, regular festivals and more than 40 beaches, the city is a favourite destination with holiday makers and Mexicans alike! For many students, the highlight of their Spanish course is having the opportunity to see whales and dolphins at first hand.
For five months of the year, Puerto Vallarta’s bay is home to a colony of humpback whales, whilst the city’s clean waters attract dolphins year round! With so much happening in and around the city, whatever the time of year, you’ll find plenty to see and do on your Spanish course!
Our school is located just 2 minutes’ walk from the seafront, in the centre of Puerto Vallarta, and is surrounded by white-washed houses and cobbled streets. There are 7 spacious classrooms, decorated in Vallarta style, plus a cafeteria and an Internet area with free Internet access and Wifi access for students with their own laptops. Our school also has an open air terrace, used for salsa classes, fiesta celebrations and enjoying Puerto Vallarta’s beautiful weather!
The great thing about our courses in Puerto Vallarta is that whilst they are intensive enough to ensure good progress, they also leave you with plenty of time to enjoy the city or relax on the beach! The maximum class size is just 5 students, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to ask questions, and you’ll receive lots of attention from our school’s friendly, fully qualified teachers.
