The school Our partner schools in Cuba are unique in that they are not centralized in a physical building! You will take your classes either in your teacher’s home, in the home of your host family or, for certain mini-group courses, in a Cuban cultural center. In all three cases, you will learn Spanish surrounded by native speakers and with well trained, highly educated teachers of Spanish.

About Trinidad Trinidad is a small, beautifully colonial Spanish town. A magnificent sandy beach lies just a short bus ride from the town center. At night, the atmosphere is wonderful, with live music and Salsa dancing in almost every corner The town of Trinidad, together with the nearby Valle de los Ingenios, has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988. Trinidad is one of the best preserved cities in the Caribbean from the time when the sugar trade was the main industry in the region. Nowadays, its main industry is tobacco processing. The older parts of town are well preserved as the Cuban tourism industry sees benefit from tour groups.

Maximum participants per group 3 students

Timetable The school will select your timetable based on your Spanish level. Classes are available in the mornings (starting at 8:30) and in the afternoons. One lesson is 50 minutes.

Accommodation The selected host families live in spacious homes in the center of the town. There are several nice bars in

the neighborhood. Host families offer single rooms with half board (breakfast and dinner). All rooms have airconditioning or a fan and some have a private bathroom. Laundry is not included. The host family can take care of the laundry for a small charge.

Activities and Excursions A trip to Cuba is not complete without a visit to one of the rum museums or tobacco factories. Take full advantage of your time in Cuba and explore the country’s breathtaking landscape and historic cities by participating in excursions along with your fellow students.

Our opinion Some tourism is now starting to reach Trinidad, but it is still largely unspoiled. However, being much smaller than Havana and Santiago de Cuba, with fewer students and more difficult to reach, Trinidad is really for students who are a bit more adventurous.
