- Three meals a day

Location of our homestays:
Our host families are located in different points of the city but all of them within a range of 15 - 20 minutes walking distance (or an 8-minute bus ride) from downtown Guanajuato.
INTENSIVE SPANISH COURSE
Intensive Spanish classes are a great way to take your Spanish level to the next level! Upon arrival, you will take a placement test which will determine what level of Spanish you'll be in. Each level integrates the teaching of grammar, reading, writing, speaking, listening comprehension as well as socio-cultural aspects like Mexican history, literature, culture seminar and a workshop of popular dance. The classes take place with other international students 5 hours every day from Monday to Friday.

During our visit to Mexico City, we will climb the pyramids of Teotihuacan, take a boat ride through the floating gardens of Xochimilco, learn about the social disparities of Mexico, visit Frida Kahlo´s house among many other things.
San Miguel de Allende
San Miguel was named Best City in the World 2017 by 'Travel+Leisure' magazine... Do we need to say anything else?
