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.
At your home stay in Montañita you will experience warm hospitality, helping you adjust quickly to your new surroundings. This priceless experience of being treated as a family member from day one has often been described as one of the highlights of our students’ trip, not only because of the rapid improvement in their Spanish skills, but also the homey feeling, the great food and the lifelong connections they made.
‘The family is very kind, especially the mom. She has welcomed me with open arms and taken care of me when I was sick with her constant smile!’ Cassandra 25 Canada
All our home stay families are located in the centre of Montañita, no more than 10 minutes walking distance from our school. Since it is our responsibility to make sure you are placed in a safe, clean and friendly environment, we carefully choose our families to ensure you get the best possible experience.
You will have a private room with a double bed, mosquito net, a small desk, a fan and a small set of drawers. Some rooms come with private bathrooms others share bathrooms with other students. Hot water can’t be guaranteed, and not all families have wifi. If you are travelling with a friend, you can both live with the same family since they can receive up to two students or even more at the same time. Meals will be Ecuadorian style and the families will do their best to satisfy special dietary requirements, as both breakfast and dinner are provided.
‘I felt really comfortable with my family, the food is really good and everyone is nice.’ Cedric, 20 Canada.
