Combine travelling in Central America with learning Spanish and having fun. Starting in Panama and ending in Costa Rica you will shop, cook, dance, zipline, head out to the beautiful islands of San Blas, sail in a catamaran and visit the Panama Canal whilst learning Spanish. Travelling with a new group of friends and a Spanish speaking instructor, you will be immersed in Spanish as you spend 4 weeks heading through two amazingly diverse countries.

Learn Spanish and Volunteer

Another great option for studying Spanish is to combine your language course with volunteering and relaxing vibes in Costa Rica! Jump into a hammock with the study material and swing in the warm sea breeze.

During this trip, you will spend time studying Spanish as well as practicing either surfing or yoga. You will also get the opportunity to volunteer in local projects (such as the turtle conservation project), go on jungle hikes and embark on a 4-day road trip that will take you on an adventure into the lush landscapes of Monteverde National Park.

On the weekends you will have plenty of free time to test your abilities in different activities: try rafting, ziplining and surfing - or just hang out by the pool and take it easy.

The combination of volunteering and a language course is the perfect choice for you who want to stop for a moment in one place, get to know the local way of life better than a regular tourist and make your trip a little bit more meaningful.

Included in the program is:

  • Accommodation
  • Local transport
  • Yoga or surf lessons
  • Volunteering
  • Hikes 
  • 4-day road trip
  • Breakfast, lunch, and brunch on weekends are included
