Spanish School in Playa del Carmen


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.

Our school

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

What we love about playa del carmen

There is a lot to explore around the city of 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 sandy beaches, crystal clear Caribbean waters and lush tropical vegetation that conform your day-to-day landscape. it’s a heavenly setting for learning about Mexican-Caribbean culture while immersing yourself in the Spanish language.
