Had a great time, very good teachers and extra curricular activities.
Not only do you learn Spanish, but you also meet people from various parts of the world plus locals and the food is very good in restaurants, and very reasonably priced.
It’s also locTed in one of the most spectacular beach towns in Mexico and still unspoiled.
EXPERIENCIA is all about an amazing experience of Mexican culture and people. This school really makes a ton of an effort to help you immerse into the Mexican way of living. I decided to take private Spanish lessons at their Spanish school in the old part of the city where you can book a room as well. And they have 2 more facilities to accommodate people, one of them is the Surfcamp right at the beach where I stayed as well. The free shuttle with Felix going between all their places makes it really convenient and activities are well coordinated if you wanna join it all.
The private classes are a lot about grammar, exactly what I was lacking so far. The teachers helped me a lot to direct my Spanish learnings to the job that i had to apply it onto, f. e. writing and correcting business-related emails. My teacher Sophia even took me to a local coffee place and held the class over there.
The facilities of the Spanish school are actually a little bit outdated, but in a really charming way because it`s so colorful painted just how you would imagine it to be in a lively beach town in the Southwest of Mexico. Since it was Christmas time the school hosted a Posada, a festivity that roots go back to the time when Augustinian monks spread the veneration of Christ in Mexico. All students and teachers joined this nights celebrations with sharing home-made traditional dishes like Tamales and the fruit punch as well as breaking the Piñata’s. Good fun and definitely something that I will remember for a long time. Gracias por todo equipo Experiencia!
I stayed at the surf camp for two weeks in december 2016.
It was two amazing weeks. I had spanish lessons in the morning and then surf lessons in the afternoon.
The surf instructors drove us to school everyday and picked us up when the school was done. I never had any spanish before, but i learned enough to travel around central America afterwards.
It was also my first time trying to surf. I really liked it, and the intructors were really good and professional. I had the same instructor the most days, and it was really good and cozy.
The school also arranged a lot of social events which was really cool!
I would definitely recommend the place!
