Learn Spanish Retreat in the Cloud Forests of Mindo
$2700 per person
Learn how to speak Spanish in the lush natural surroundings of Mindo, a village in the Andes Mountains of Northern Ecuador. There is no better or faster way to learn the language then in a semi-private class (4 maximum per class) with the rest of the day to practise as much as you want. Four hours of daily instruction by a qualified teacher will be tailored to your specific language abilities.
The village is full of wonderful friends and extended family of your host, Alison Braun, offering lots of opportunity to try out your Spanish after class is over. We will also have the chance to tour an artisanal chocolate factory, butterfly gardens, and orchid gardens, and lots of opportunity to explore this incredibly biodiverse region on different hikes and guided tours.
On the evening that you arrive, we will overnight in the lovely capital city of Quito, with a guided tour of the historic centre the next morning. This will also allow us to make a few fun stops on the way to Mindo, including a stop at the Equator line to do some fun experiments and learn about the cultures of Ecuador.
This retreat offers a wonderful week away of relaxation, gourmet meals, a mixture of great culture and nature activities, and of course lots of practice speaking Spanish!
$2,700.00 CAD includes your accommodations in Mindo & Quito, all nature & cultural activities, private transportation throughout, including airport transfers, most meals, and daily Spanish lessons. Does not include your return international airfare, one lunch and one dinner.
