Learning Spanish

In Baños

general overview

In the popular subtropical Baños we offer Spanish classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. Our classes will be given by professional teachers, who are very passionate about the Spanish league, the Ecuadorian culture and our volunteer projects, they will be very happy to share their knowledge with you. The classes will take place at the very nice and cozy hostel you will be staying at.

Making your time in Ecuador more interesting and meaningful.





Baños is widely famous among travelers, not only for foreign but also Ecuadorians who always consider it to spend a weekend or a public holiday. Why is this? Well just because it is chévere! Baños is a vibrant small town full of fun and surrounded by nature; being located at the edge of the Andes and at the start of the Ecuadorian Amazon jungle, it offers a great deal of activities to ensure you days and nights of fun, nice, interesting and adventurous experiences. The weather is very nice as it is located at 1200 m.  On the other hand, it is also the perfect place if what you look for is relax and disconnect from the rumble and hustle of the city, enjoying a bath in natural hot springs with beautiful views, rent a bike to get to know the town or just take a nice walk around. Baños is a safe place.
