It will only take you 10-20 minutes to get to the center of the city and you can find everything you need within a couple of blocks. There are many restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, stores, metro stations, bus routes and parks. We have 7 classrooms, media center and library, lounge, two bathrooms, kitchen, patio and offices. It is open from 8 am to 9 pm during the week and from 9 am to 1 pm on Saturdays.

We offer accommodation and activities as part of the immersion experience, as well as special programs such as skiing, salsa and merengue, wine tours and cooking classes.
