Learn Spanish in Mexico + the Best Salbutes in Town

I had two experiences learning Spanish in Playa del Carmen. The first two months were at Solexico for 4 hours a day & the last month was with a private tutor for one hour a day.

Learning Spanish in Playa del Carmen.

Spanish in Mexico.

Solexico is quite a large school with lots of little palapas. They have a cafe on site where you can purchase food & drinks. They also offer weekly salsa lessons, cooking classes, volleyball on the beach & a get together in a bar as part of the package. You can arrange home stays with Mexican families if you want more exposure to their way of  life & the language. The staff are really lovely & I enjoyed my time there.

MONEY TIP:  they now charge more than the price stated on their website but if you ask they will honour the web price. Its a big saving.

My private tutor Cyndi is both an English & Spanish teacher. And I can honestly say I learned more in 20 hours with her than my total 160 hours in Solexico. Learning a new language is not easy & it definitely needs to be unravelled one piece at a time & the more explanation the better. Which is what she was able to do. Total immersion for children is great but adults need alot more clarification. I heard about Cyndi via word of mouth & if you want to get in touch with her just drop me note.

I really enjoyed learning a new language & would encourage anyone who feels they don’t have what it takes to try. If I can do it so can you!

FOOD TIP: Just up the road from the school on the corner of Calle 6 & Av. 35 are 3 street food vendors. If you’re in the area you MUST try the Salbutes they are amazing plus the tostadas & empanadas are definitely worth a revisit. Cheap delicious goodness.
