Great school and people. Afternoon tours are also worthwhile. Classes went from 9-1 with a break. Free water, coffee,etc. Teachers were patient and class sizes small.

Yanapuma is located 2 blocks away from the main square in Cuenca, but when you walk up the stairs to the school, you feel like you could be in a great-aunt's living room. It's very homey with nice natural light, and everyone at the school...More

I spent a week at Yanapuma with three hours of tutoring each morning. Communication to line up the week was easy, instruction was excellent, and it was a wonderful week. If I'm ever back in Cuenca, I will definitely do a repeat performance. Thanks Yanapuma!
