Don Quijote Playa del Carmen

Part of the Don Quijote group of language schools renowned for their excellenet language courses, the school is located just six blocks from Playa del Carmen's white sandy Caribbean beaches, a dream holiday destination. In addition to the school's peaceful atmosphere and tropical gardens, its architecture is surprising and unique as your lessons take place in individual cabins. As the cabins are open and have thatched roofs, they are both quirky and pleasantly cool.

With Don Quijote you can take the same Spanish course in three other Mexican cities. If you start learning Spanish in one place and would like to continue your course in another, you only need to pay the registration fee once. Why not start your Spanish lessons in Playa del Carmen and then travel to Guanajuato or Oaxaca?

The Don Quijote team organizes a daily activity program including visits, salsa lessons, Mexican cooking lessons, yoga, beach volleyball tournaments and cinema outings. Some of these activities are free and others are offered at a reduced price. The Don Quijote staff can also assist you to plan your own activities for your free time. Each day after class, students normally meet in the cafeteria or on the volleyball court to spend their evenings together.  

All Don Quijote teachers have a university degree and between five and fifteen years of experience teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
