WHO IS THIS SPANISH IMMERSION RETREAT FOR?
This immersive Spanish retreat is intended for all Spanish lovers who want to not only get the gist of the language but also immerse themselves in Spanish speaking culture while studying and traveling. If you are a beginner in Spanish or you want to advance your current skills, you are going to learn a full Spanish-Entry-A-level course that will leave you with great basic conversational Spanish skills and hopefully the best memories of Cuba!
You will learn about the best methods for effective language learning through methodic workshops that teach you not only the theory but will be put into practice day by day when going about the Cuban life!
If you haven’t done a language retreat before, this is the time to savour the benefits of learning while you dive into the cultural aspects of a society. Ultimately it will be one of the best things you’ll ever experience (I’m speaking out of experience) and that is why we are more than happy to accompany you on your language learning journey!
Discover Cuba’s most beautiful towns and breathtaking countrysides on our itinerary.
Havana and Trinidad
With its lively atmosphere, non-stop music playing on the streets, people, dance, history, culture, the Cuban capital Havana is an unforgettable place to visit. Dive deep into the Cuban world for as long as 12 days and feel how it like to be and live like a Cuban! You will be surprised at how much you’ll learn in just 12 days of traveling and interacting with Cubans on an intense immersion.

Havana is the biggest city in Cuba, so we will take our time to explore different sites and activities throughout the first week. Each morning you will have Spanish lessons from 9 am-12 am, right after a homemade typical Cuban breakfast at our villa apartment. After classes, you’ll have time to either cook lunch at home or explore Cuban cuisine in one of the many “paladares” (typical Cuban restaurants) throughout the city. In the afternoon there will be an activity from the ones mentioned.
Trinidad is one of the oldest colonial towns in Cuba and absolutely worth exploring. Some fun activities we’ll explore there include horseback-riding to amazing national parks and swimming in natural waterfalls.
