Our Spanish school in Bocas del Toro – Spanish by the Sea was founded in 1998 and is conveniently located on fourth street, right behind the now busy Main street. Spanish classes are held all around the building, from upstairs on the balcony to the rancho in the garden. In high season you can see Spanish teachers and students everywhere. Students love the casual setting in which Spanish classes are conducted. In breaks we serve coffee and tea and sometimes tropical fruits from our garden. Students are welcome to use the teaching stations to study in quiet hours and also the library with dictionaries and all kinds of other helpful books. In the garden you find palm trees and banana plants and lounges to relax. You can walk into Bocas town and find hotels, restaurants, tour operators, a bank, internet cafes, bars, shops and an airport.

Our Spanish school in Bocas, Panama is perfect for adventurous people that love to learn the language without being rushed. Spanish and Sea adventures like diving, surfing and sailing makes your study time so much more pleasant.
