My boyfriend and I rented an apartment from Mayra for a week as well as I took Spanish classes at her school. The apartment was great. We felt super at home. Both the class and apartment where an incredible price! My teacher was so so kind and it was great having a space to speak Spanish where I was comfortable.... More

Mayra's school was an excellent experience. I spent two weeks studying Spanish (starting from knowing no Spanish at all) and was thrilled with how much Spanish I learned in this amount of time. My teacher, Daniela, was amazing, and very flexible. Mayra also arranged for me to stay with a local family, which totally made my experience. I would totally... More

I spent just 4 days at Mayra's school. I really enjoyed it and liked how Mayra was willing to tailor the class to my needs (i mainly wanted conversation practice). The school was very friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. Mayra even bought a birthday cake for one of her students on my last day! Overall it was a fun and... More

I stayed with Mayra as a volunteer and was able to experience first-hand the comforts and joys of sharing in her accommodations and Spanish classes. The apartment building is located right in town, is clean, and offers a variety of options starting at $10 a night...which is what most people pay for a hostel. Also, the Spanish classes are catered... More

My wife and I are a couple in our early sixties who needed a place to rest for ten days after 4.5 months of driving our car through Peru and Ecuador. Mayra's delightful suite was the ideal place to stay. Located in a reasonably quiet area of Baños, the suite we stayed in has a nice sitting area, a well-equipped... More

I studied with Mayra for one week, but wish that it could have been longer. Mayra was a superb teacher - I had studied Spanish a bit 7 years ago but needed major refreshing in my memory and Mayra provided this by using games, exercises, visual aids etc. I ended up learning loads. She was also great company - i... More

Early this year (2013) I arranged to stay in one of Mayra's apartments. I rented the studio and it was my intention to attend the Spanish School. I noticed on the Internet that she also had a 2 bedroom unit available so changed my reservation to the 2 bedroom. I was told by a member of her staff that would... More

I was only in Banos for a couple of days however I really enjoyed studying Spanish at Mayra's school. The teachers were professional and Mayra in particular was very helpful with juggling the timetable so I could fit more classes into my short stay. Would have studied for longer had my iterary allowed. Many thanks Matthew Australia

My husband and I studied for a month at Mayra's Spanish School in Spring 2012. We had a great experience and learned a TON of Spanish. We studied with Marcos, who was a great teacher and super patient with us as we worked through our lessons. We really liked how he never let us "get away" with pronouncing something wrong... More

We were both limited in spanish before hand.. we were getting by with minimal "Span-lish"! Mayra was our teacher, she was great. She was patient and it is suprising how quickly you understand the verbs and structure of the language. We only studied for 7 days so still alot to go but Mayra has taken extra time to send over...
