Evaluation from opmiller:
The school was very convenient to the beach.
Evaluation from suzanne:
this is a small personal school in a great location -air conditioned classrooms, internet, nice gardens, pool area, and 2 blocks from the beach! many students are from switzerland but also form all over the world living at the school was fun and convenient. Living with a family allows you to practice more spanish and enjoy homecooked meals. its very hot in summer but the beach is always incredible.

I debated between this school and IHRiveria Maya, but settled on Playalingua because IH didn't have a class starting for my level. I went to Playalingua only for 1 week because that is all the time that I had, but very much enjoyed my stay and classes there. The price of the lodging was very good. I had a single room with a balcony for $195 US for the week, but keep in mind, for that price you will be sharing a bathroom. The school has a cook on site who makes you breakfast every morning, he was nice and the food was very good, even the coffee was good. The housekeeper cleaned and gave new towels every morning, she was lovely, don't forget to tip her. The classes were very small for me because i went during "swine flu" drama time, so there was only 1 other person in my class, but we still did the full 4 hours a day. Excellent. The class was fairly casual, it's not hardcore, we went through excercizes in the book and the teacher, although she could speak english, kept the class completely in spanish, which was excellent. The school is in the perfect location and the staff very friendly. They didnt have any extracurricular activities while i was there because of the lack of people, but that was fine with me, i had only limited time and wasn't looking for anything else but classes, beach and my own adventures. Definitely recommend. I didn't get a chance to check out IH, but their residences are much larger, but this place has a great pool and hammocks area, very nice.
Evaluation from aim2getit:
I felt that the teachers could have been more motivated. The students were great and the environment is extremely fun. I am definitely going back for the locals and the environment.
Evaluation from aim2learnspanish:
Best way to learn is to meet locals at this friendly town and hangout with them to practice Spanish.
