The school is amazing. The hands on skills are superb. It's a very comfortable environment. It was like all the sudden we are not doing book work we were just talking Spanish in conversation like you would your friend. Amazing experience.

We were with the travelling school so we had activities everyday but one. That one day we just studied and relaxed by the pool which we were welcome to... More

It was just my husband and I in the class, but it was perfect. We had classes each day and went to a home stay each night. Staying with Jorge's family... More

We visited Surpacifico school as part of a travelling classroom programme. We actually booked the programme through Montañita Spanish School but both schools are run by the same person (Manuel) and it's all very well coordinated. Manuel and Rosi were so welcoming and friendly. We spent lots of time relaxing by their pool after classes. The classes were great, we... More

Cabs are very cheap in Ecuador so no problem to take a taxi now and then. The accommodation in the schoolresidence is very nice and safe. I had a big clean room with... More

I spent several weeks in the Spanish school and it was a life time experience. The familiar atmosphere is unique, the Spanish classes are a lot of fun with experienced teachers and I enjoyed the different activities a lot as well.
