The Spanish Experience Center is located just one block from the sea, in the centre of Puerto Vallarta, an area full of charming colonial buildings and narrow streets. The typical colonial school building has been recently renovated, has a beautiful central patio and is fully air conditioned. After classes, students like to meet on the rooftop terrace to relax and make new friends.
At Spanish Experience Center, special emphasis is placed on learning about Mexican culture both during lessons and through recreational activities. The school’s goal is for all students to get a real feel for the country and take a little bit of the Center's passion for the Spanish language and Mexican culture home with them. All the teachers are native speakers and fully certified to teach Spanish as a foreign language, and the school is proud of its friendly atmosphere, with the staff always willing to assist with your queries and travel plans.
There is a weekly activity program that includes various workshops, salsa lessons, Mexican cooking classes and social events. Once a week there is also a special 'Noche de Guateque' event where students experience the town’s lively nightlife and get to know each other better while practicing their Spanish. For the weekends, the school also arranges excursions at a reduced price. Options may include trips to the traditional village of Tlaquepaque, the lively city of Guadalajara and various national parks, as well as activities such as swimming with dolphins, horseback riding, surfing and scuba diving.
