Join an intensive 1-to-1 Spanish course in Boquete, a charming little town located in the Chiriqui highlands of Panama.
Boquete, with its alluring Caldera river flowing through its center, is an idyllic small town nestled in the Chiriqui highlands with a tropical but cooler climate. Boquete is famous for high quality coffee production. In the surrounding area you find immense tropical forests, waterfalls, running rivers, hotsprings and natural rock formations. The Baru volcano, with an elevation of almost 3.500 meters, is the highest point in the country. A true paradise for active eco-tourists that also want to learn Spanish!

Who likes to study at Spanish by the River - Boquete?
Nature lovers, ecotourists, mountain folk, wanderers, extreme sports enthusiasts and the serious student will love Boquete for the relaxing learning environment and the rich outdoor culture of the town.

Have you considered staying with a host family?
Living with a local host family is a unique experience that will provide you the opportunity to not only learn the language but also explore the culture of Panama. A homestay is an essential part of an immersion Spanish course; only by mixing with the local people and having to speak the Spanish language you are going to do it and learn it naturally!

Maybe you are a bit hesitant but you need to know that our families are used to receiving foreigners like you in their homes and making them feel comfortable even if you don’t speak Spanish. They will be able to communicate with you!

Sheets and towels are included. There is free coffee and tea in the morning, and a laundry service is available for a fee. Our backyard garden, fully equipped communal kitchen, open and welcoming environment, free WiFi and a maximum of ten guests at a time all help create a comfortable, relaxed and peaceful place to call home while in Boquete.

Local Homestay
The rooms in the homestays are private and have shared bathrooms. The package with our home stays in Panama always includes laundry servce and breakfast. Lunch and dinner can be added if you wish at an additional cost. Food is typical Panamanian so you will eat rice and beans, chicken, meat and patacones (fried plantains). We can only expect the local family to adapt their cooking a little bit to your specific dietary needs so if you eat for example gluten free, you will need to bring some products to supply the food that will be offered.

To get to your family in Boquete, you first go to the school and the family will be notified to pick you up at the school.
