There is no better place on earth to study Spanish than in the Peruvian Amazon.
Why Study Spanish in Tambopata:
The Spanish classes in the Peruvian rainforest are given in small groups so you will learn Spanish quickly. The Spanish teachers, who come from the partner school in Cusco, stay with the students for the entire period of their Spanish program in Tambopata. The best part about studying here is the atmosphere, the setting and the exciting jungle tours in the Peruvian Amazon with an experienced guide. The teachers use a personal approach to teach the students according to their learning styles.
The school in the Peruvian Amazon is a lodge with areas to teach Spanish and rooms in bungalows or cabins for living. To get to the school, take a night bus from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado that will take approx. eight hours (or, you take a plane and arrive in 40 minutes). From Puerto Maldonado, you continue the trip by boat. Enjoy the amazing views over the Tambopata River in the Peruvian Amazon. With the Spanish program in Tambopata, all meals are included as well as an amazing tour and activity program.
Among the options of this unique Spanish Program in the rainforest are hikes through the Peruvian Jungle, canoe trips on the Tambopata river to spot wild animals like otters, monkeys and turtles, or bird watching from a tower. At night, we go searching for caimans in the Tambopata river and if the weather allows we will visit a local community where you can meet the locals and learn about their traditional culture.
The Tambopata National Park is a protected area in the Amazon in Peru of approx. 1.5 million hectares. The Reserve has many diverse hábitats, and because of it’s protected status and secluded location, it is incredibly biodiverse: here you can find over 1,000 species of butterflies, 100 species of mammals, 600 species of birds, and hundreds of species of trees and plants! Originally home to the Ese Eja people, many indigenous families still live in the buffer zone of the Reserve in different communities. The climate is sub-tropical with a wet season from November to April and a dry season from May to October. In Tambopata, the malaria risk is low, though it is a good idea to bring your insect repellent since there are lots of mosquitos. A yellow fever vaccination is recommended.
The activities and tours are probably the best part of this unique Spanish Program in Peru ad they’re truly unique! Most tours will be accompanied by a professional rainforest that knows the area and will guide you through the jungle. Some of the excursions in Tambopata are a canoe tour on the Sandoval Lake to observe monkeys, turtles and giant otters, a visit to the butterfly farm, a tour to Monkey Island and the famous Macaw Clay Lick.
