Spanish Language Retreat in the Cloud Forest
$0 per person
Learn how to speak Spanish in the lush natural surroundings of Mindo, a village in a valley of 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.
This retreat offers a wonderful week away of relaxation, catered gourmet meals, a mixture of great culture and nature activities, and of course lots of practice speaking Spanish, and can be arranged for individuals or groups by checking in with us on dates.
Your week together will weave a combination of different daily activities that you pick out (see above “OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES”) along with meals (breakfasts and dinners) catered just for you on site, served in the open air dining area beside the river that rushes by your accommodations. On top of the various activities listed above, there will be many different ways to enjoy your time here, including organizing day trips to other regions, shopping
for souvenirs in one of the local shops, heading out on one of many nature trails in the region, or just reading a book in one of the many options of hammocks and sitting areas. This retreat will look very different for every group, whether with more of an educational theme, an active adrenaline theme, or just taking the time to relax and catch up with each other. Whatever you choose, we will make sure it is a wonderful week for all!
