The school is located in the center of the town, and offers Spanish lessons as well as many extra-curricular activities. Here you will learn Spanish at a local school - 20 hours are included plus you’ll take a mountain bike trip, try out a canopy & bridge experience and go on a night chiva - a local open bus that takes you to the lookout point over the active Tungurahua volcano with music and a bonfire - a “must” for anyone visiting Banos.
