I stayed with my girlfriend in the eco-lodge which was really cool. It had a comfortable bed and a really good mosquito net, a desk with a chair and a mirror. We were on the top which then gave us an amazing wrap around deck and a hammock chair. Absolutely stunning. We shared our toilet and shower which never seemed... More

Amongst a background of incredible flora and fauna, this eco-hotel is run efficiently with friendly and professional staff. Spanish lessons were educational and fun and the field trips were wonderful.

Great place to volunteer. A very friendly environment. Lots of options for service. La Mariposa is the heart of the local community. I especially liked working the land at the Riserva and helping out at Los Pepitos, the special needs school.

The mariposa is a lovely environment in which to learn spanish/relax/go on numerous activities/ or volunteer. We stayed for a month in the Eco Cabin which is rustic but nice and clean. The teachers are all lovely and we felt very sad to leave them! Paulette and the interns were very helpful and the school and the projects they run... More

My stay at La Mariposa was a wonderful experience. I spent two weeks there; one week in a homestay, and one week in one of the cabins. The ambience was great; the staff were all very friendly, adn Paulette is lovely... She is very committed to her staff and larger community, and it is easy to tell that she is... More

I stayed almost two months here. I started with 2 weeks in the hotel to get used to everything, after the hotel I moved in with the best host family possible. I started off with spanish classes right away. I was a complete beginner but when I left I had been through all the grammar and had learned to speak... More

La Mariposa is a wonderful and friendly spot. The staff are extremely helpful, the included outings are fantastic (volcano at sunset - wow!), and the quality of the teaching was excellent. The teaching is 1-1, which is brilliant for being able to tailor it to each students' needs. I stayed in the Eco hotel and had a spacious room and... More

What was really special about La Mariposa Spanish School for me (I didn't stay at the hotel, but opted for a home stay, volunteering and Spanish lessons through them), was the opportunity to forge friendships with some wonderful people of the community whom I never would have otherwise met. The interns also do a wonderful job balancing the impressive list... More

Great place to learn Spanish and to stay. I just left, but already want to go back. Started with no Spanish at all and after a month I could do nice chit chats. Teachers were dedicated, classes were fun. At the hotel you feel like being in a little jungle. I stayed in a very nice homestay first and in... More
