The palm-fringed beaches and traditional villages of the San Blas Islands lie just east of Colon along Panama’s Caribbean coast. On this tour, visit multiple islands in one day such as Aguja, Pelicano, and Perro islands; enjoy fun activities such as swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking; visit a sunken shipwreck; and take a swim in a natural pool.

I am sure they are great, but the classes didn't work out for me. The management was very helpful. I would recommend they fully train teachers before hiring to ensure the best.

I have been taking Spanish learning classes at Habla Ya since April 2019 at their Panama City campus with the goal to give Advanced level(C1) exams in May this year. Now that I am due to give my exams shortly, I wanted to share my experience over the past year… it has been an incredible journey full of fun, laughter and hopefully a happy ending! I had started with the group classes and after two months shifted to private classes.During the initial months I had Stephany and Jesus as my professors- both young, committed and excellent- and now since the past 10 months am being taught by Ana who is phenomenal!! Infact , it’s not just the professors but also the front office staff (Dwan and Ashley) who always make you feel right at home since day one. Especially Dwan has been so kind and helpful every single time that I needed to change my timings owing to having emergencies in my high pressure full time job. The flexibility and the personal touch of the team members of Habla Ya is incredible. Never over the past one year has arisen any occasion when the team has not come forward with innovative solutions for ensuring that my learning progresses without any hindrance. No words of praise are enough for my lovely professor Ana who is a powerhouse of knowledge, empathy, motivation and enthusiasm. There have been difficult days when I lost my motivation to continue, when learning seemed impossible… but those were the days she doubled up and bought me back on track with different learning techniques, motivational speeches and a never say die attitude! Infact over the past two months in spite of all the negative consequences of the COVID19, none of the professors have given up on their commitment and sincerity. Each day Ana through her online classes keeps me on course and motivated for my exam. No better moment to tell you Ana and all your wonderful colleagues at Habla Ya , how truly grateful I am to you all and how blessed I feel to have chosen to study at this institute!!

I completed two weeks of Spanish immersion in Panama City with Habla Ya. I had not taken formal Spanish lessons before but had picked up a little bit of Spanish through travel and from Spanish-speaking co-workers. By the time I left, I feel I had advanced in my ability to understand and speak Spanish. The instructor, Simón Abraham was exceptional. I had Simón for both group lessons and private tutoring. Simón is extremely patient and explains things (in Spanish) in a way that allows you to understand the concepts he is teaching. Simón uses Habla Ya’s curriculum but also adapts it to the needs of his students. Perhaps the best thing about the Habla Ya method is that they stress speaking the language. Yes, I made mistakes constantly and Simón would gently correct them. However, it helped me get over my reluctance to speak and increased my confidence. I only wish that I had stayed longer than two weeks!

My wife and I really enjoyed our time at Habla Ya. Our Professor, Simon Abraham, was patient, and understood our different learning needs. The course was challenging (4 hours per day + homework), and very rewarding. All the staff at Habla Ya were friendly and helpful. The after class activities with our Professor and other students were not only fun, but gave us real life practice using our newly acquired Spanish skills. Muchas Gracias Simon y Habla Ya!

I'm really pleased with the experience I had at Habla Ya! The classes were very interactive: games, videos, stories etc. Prof.Simon was very helpful, patient, & engaged. Classes were well planned and incorporated different types of learning. We even had class outside of the classroom which I enjoyed. I enjoyed the activities that were available and the other members of the HablaYa! team (honorable mentions to Dwan, Stephany, Gabriel, and Howard who helped along the way) were great as well. Thank you all for the experience!
