Amazon Spanish Adventure

Spanish classes and Adventure in the Amazon Rainforest!

A week spent at the Amazon Spanish Center center offers a superb experience, exploring the unique biological and cultural diversity of the Amazon region while you take Spanish classes surrounded by the magic of the rainforest. This program starts by traveling on Sunday to arrive in the late afternoon or early evening at the lodge. A 4-hour bus ride to Tena is followed by a shorter local bus ride to Ahuano where you will cross the river in a motorized canoe. From there you will be met and driven to the lodge which is fairly close by.

The rest of the week is a combination of Spanish classes and excursions. These include taking a motorized canoe across to Anaconda Island and visiting a local Kichwan family in their jungle home to learn about their way of life. Students will also get an opportunity to drift down the river in an inflated inner-tube (tubing) and watch the Amazon rainforest passing by on both sides. There are also hikes into primary rainforest with expert guides who can identify the medicinal plants and other useful species, as well as pointing out the birds, monkeys and other animals that call the Amazon home. Other options include visiting a butterfly farm in the nearby village.

Staff prepare delicious and balanced meals using local products as far as possible. Vegetarians and other dietary requirements can be catered for. Meals are served in the dining area which looks out towards the river and the rainforest beyond.
