Habla Ya Spanish School Bocas del Toro

(349 ratings)

Habla Ya Spanish School is a small, friendly Spanish language school located in Bocas Town, Isla Colón, a tropical paradise in the Bocas del Toro region of Panama. Habla Ya Bocas del Toro prides itself on its fun, interactive teaching approach, incorporating real life practice into its lessons, and its eco-friendly mindset. The school's teachers are highly motivated and focus on giving each student the personal attention that they need to make fast progress.

As it is part of the Habla Ya group of Spanish schools in Panama, students can choose to split their Spanish studies between the schools in Bocas del Toro and Panama City. This enables you to get to know two very different parts of the country during your course, the country’s lively, modern capital city and the laid-back, tropical islands.

Habla Ya Bocas del Toro is located in an air-conditioned two-storey Caribbean house surrounded by beautiful gardens containing hammocks and chairs for students to relax in. Only one block away from the sea, it’s just a five minute walk from the school to the beach. As Bocas Town is fairly small, everything you could need is within walking distance.

For its students' free time, Habla Ya Bocas del Toro offers daily yoga classes and surfing trips. There are also opportunities to rent bikes and kayaks and to take part in sports matches at the beach, attend film nights, go out to local restaurants and learn how to dance salsa. Staff can also help students to book weekend excursions including horseback riding tours, boat parties, scuba diving lessons, bird watching and island hopping around the region.
