This school offers many different after-school activities. There is a city tour through the Old City of Montevideo, or a visit to the Teatro Solís – South America’s oldest working theatre - or the beautiful botanical gardens. Students enjoy the weekly tango lessons, nights out or go by bike right along the seafront promenade; horseback riding is also very popular. For a small cost, the school offers the option to do a wine workshop or a workshop on African dance and music (Candombe) during the weekends in the small villages around Montevideo.
Montevideo is emerging as one of South America’s coolest capitals, renowned for its architecture, beautiful old quarters and thriving cultural scene. It is a laid-back and safe city. Thanks to the location within the country, it serves as a central point for exploring Uruguay. At only a 45 minute flight from ‘big brother’ Buenos Aires, the nice coastline gives the Uruguyan capital a unique character.
In the old section of Montevideo, you will find many historical elements. There are countless museums, monuments, the Legislative Palace, boulevards, sculptures, many quaint squares and beautiful avenues. There are many parks, where book fairs, markets, carnivals and other cultural events are held. Montevideo is a very green city too and therefore offers a wide range of sporting activities.
Enrich your experience in Uruguay by practising your Spanish while supporting the local community. To volunteer work in Montevideo, take a Spanish course first for better communication with the locals. Volunteer options involve working with children living on the streets, volunteering in a home for people with a mental disability, or teaching English to children. You can also volunteer at a biological farm, with whales and dolphins or sea turtles.
Practice your Spanish while enjoying the company of an Uruguayan local guide while horseback riding, biking, kayaking, diving or windsurfing. There are plenty of active tours that allow you to explore the countryside of Uruguay or its beautiful coastline. The school offers jeep tours, visits to museums, botanical gardens tours or hot springs. As Uruguay is not that big, from Montevideo, you can see a good portion of the country in weekend getaways.
Check out the big cities of Salto (hot springs!), the colonial town of Carmela where you can visit wineries, and Paysandu. Of course, you shouldn’t miss the historic town of Colonia del Sacramento on the western front. Other great day trips are to Punta del Este, La Paloma, or you can go surfing or relaxing in the bohemian town of Punta del Diablo, or spot whales from the beaches of Piriápolis!
