HOMESTAY

Your Ecuadorian host family gives you the opportunity to be fully immersed in the Ecuadorian lifestyle. While settling in and learning a new language can be hard when you arrive in a foreign country, having the support of a local family and a connection to the local community can make all the difference.

All of our homestay families are located in the center of Montañita, no more than 10 minutes walking distance from our school. You will have a private room with a double bed, a mosquito net, a desk, a fan, and a small dresser. Of course there is warm water, and WiFi.

If you are traveling with a friend, you can both live with the same family as they have plenty of space to hold two students. Meals are homemade Ecuadorian-style and the families do their best to satisfy special dietary requirements, as both breakfast and dinner are provided.

CABAÑAS

We have accommodation especially for our students in our beautiful cabañas which are only a 5 minute walk to the school, 3 minutes to the center of town, and 2 minutes to the beach. Nestled into the relaxed neighborhood of ‘Barrio Tigrillo,’ our Cabañas provide the best of both worlds, being close to the nightlife, restaurants, and amenities of downtown but in a tranquil area perfect for relaxing in peace.
Our cabañas are very spacious and come equipped with a private en suite bathroom, large bed, hammocks, and a fan. Just outside the door of your cabaña you will find a swimming pool, jacuzzi, large kitchen fully stocked with cooking supplies and cutlery, and a communal dining area.

Another amazing asset to our cabanas is our staff that maintain them. Our dedicated groundskeeper Ronny, our lovely housekeeper Fabiola, and our diligent security guards Antonio and Jefferson. Our hard-working interns also reside at the cabañas and gladly assist the students there when available.
