The school Our school in Playa del Carmen is just 6 blocks from the white sand beaches. Better yet, classes are held outside under thatched roofs amidst our own tropical gardens, so you can enjoy the full Caribbean experience. The school boasts a well-stocked library, open air and air conditioned conference rooms (ideal for guitar and salsa classes, and our weekly gatherings), a cafeteria, volleyball court and garden areas to relax during breaks or after a day of classes.

Juan Carlos Delgado

"In the heart of the Mayan Riviera, Playa del Carmen is located just 40 minutes from Cancun International Airport. The area is blessed with lush, tropical vegetation, crystal-clear cenotes (fresh water pools), and Mexico’s most important Mayan cultural centers - Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza. Playa del Carmen has become a multicultural destination due to its natural beauty and the warmth of its people. The turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea wash over Playa’s white sand beaches and create Paradise in every sense of the word. Fifth Avenue, with its many cafes, restaurants, galleries, shops, and bars, also helps keep Playa at the top of Mexico’s hot-spots. All together, Playa del Carmen is the perfect place to relax, explore, and learn Spanish. "

About Playa del Carmen Simply known as “Playa,” this small Caribbean fishing village on the Mayan Riviera is Cancun’s laid-back neighbor (approximately 35 minutes from Cancun’s international airport and 40 minutes from Tulum). Playa is a great place to enjoy the cultural and historic richness of Mexico and the Mayan people. It attracts people from all over the world because of its relaxed, tropical atmosphere and its unmatched beautiful beaches. Despite a rapidly growing population and increased popularity as a tourist destination, the residents of “Playa” are committed to maintaining their city’s bohemian charm and relaxed pace.

Activities During the conversation hours, lectures are given on Mexican history, Mayan Culture, national holidays, etc. In the afternoons we offer workshops and activities that include cooking, arts and crafts, salsa classes, singing Mexican songs, a fiesta or a picnic. A movie is shown every week and with Playa’s great location, you can enjoy a great variety of excursions: Tulum, Xcaret, Chichen-Itza...

There is a lot to explore around Playa del Carmen. You can hop on the ferry to Cozumel for world class scuba diving, explore an abundance of nearby Mayan ruins or head to Cancún for shopping and wild nightlife. Best of all are the city’s white sands, crystal clear Caribbean waters and lush tropical vegetation that will make up your day-to-day landscape. It’s a heavenly setting for learning about Mexican-Caribbean culture while immersing yourself in the Spanish language.
