This school was absolutely amazing! The staff was very knowledgeable in Spanish and English and gave full immersion, with extra side activities. The classrooms were outside in a shaded area with perfect view of the mountains and coffee trees. We tailored the class to our interests as well. The location is right in the heart of the Mayan people (who all speak the Mayan languages also). They are so friendly and the school is right off the famous Lago Atitlán in the best pueblo around the lake. No cons at all.
