"My sisters and I spent 4 weeks at the Academia de Espanol Surpacifico, in Ecuador. It was a lovely experience! The teachers were wonderful: well-prepared, organized, and patient. The school provided good host families for all of the students and had many fun activities. The director, Manuel, is kind and caring and takes a real interest in providing for all the students."

Isla de la Plata
Surpacifico Spanish School occasionally organizes tours to the famous Isla de la Plata with its similar flora and fauna to the Galápagos Islands.
In the morning we leave with the school’s car and drive all the way south to Puerto Lopez. From there an English-speaking naturalist guide accompanies us on the boat to the unique island. On the way there it is possible to see whales and dolphins especially from June until September. The captain stops the boat so you have the possibility to observe the stunning animals.
Upon Arrival on the island we have two options: either to go on the easy walk, (ca.1hour) to have a stunning cliff view or the more challenging walk, (ca.2hours) to observe more of the numerous bird types, the island is famous for.
After the walk we go back on the boat, and lunch will be served before we go to another part of the island to enjoy some snorkeling. The equipment will be provided to you.
On the way back some fresh fruits and snacks will be served as well and you can keep looking out for whales and dolphins.
As the whim takes us we can go for a little walk through Puerto Lopez before we head back to Manta with our driver.
Take this unique opportunity we offer our students and enjoy a great day with some special Galápagos feeling.
