I have been living in Manta for more than four months and have seen various schools. Therefore I can assure you that this one is definitely the best one in Manta! People are more than friendly, very well organized and all of the teachers have experience in teaching languages - which is definitely not the case in any other school I have seen. Furthermore school organizes weekendtrips and parties in order to bring their students a bit closer to real ecuadorian live. Besides all that, Manta is really a cool place to be! So don't hesitate and get to know beautiful Ecuador!
"I spent two weeks at surpacifico and i would highly recomment it. Our teaching was very good and at a good pace! Everyone here is really friendly and will help you with anything and there are lots of extra activities organised so you can get the most out of your stay ? I really enjoyed the salsa! The apartment has everything you need and manta provides everything else to keep you busy! Thank you to everyone at surpacifico."
"Hallo, I am Christine from Munich, Germany! I have visited the Academia Surpacifico in Manta, Ecuador, to learn Spanish. This trip was fantastic! I met a lot of super friendly people, the teachers are excellent and Ecuador is a fascinating and beautiful country...."
With the home-stay family option students can maximize their learning—not only while practicing Spanish, but also to get to know the Ecuadorian culture—by sharing in the daily life of the family.
All of our host families are carefully selected to provide the optimal support and comfort for an enjoyable stay.
Everystudent will have its own private room and will share bathroom facilities with the family, and half board (breakfast and dinner). Furthermore, weekly laundry service is included with this option.
We offer you a fully equipped student apartment near the school in a safe and tranquil area. The apartment is placed in the modern part of the city and very close to shopping possibilities, restaurants, parks etc.
With this option you can enjoy a more independent way of living, while sharing your experience with the other students from distinct parts of the world.
The apartment is fully furnished, with living room and kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities.
Hostels and hotels
We offer you a third possibility as well, if you prefer staying in a hostel or even hotel. We maintain good relationships and get discounts of various hotels throughout the city and make sure to providethe accommodations most suitable for our students’ expectations.
With the common option we provide a private room and private bathroom, security box, storage equipment, and also a 12% VAT and 10% service tax.
If you prefer a shared bedroom in a hostel or an upper class hotel, whatever your preferences are, we will find the best accommodation for you.
How to arrive
- We can organize a Private Airport Pickup for our students. A personalized driver from the school will pick you up from the new Tababela' s airport and bring you to your accommodation. It can happen that there is more than one student, whoarrives in the same time range or flight, in those cases you will need to wait for the rest of students. But the waiting time will not take more than 30 minutes.
Private airport pickup price: USD $35,00
- Another possibility is to take an Airport Special Taxi. You pay the taxi inside of the airport; they assign you a taxi, call your host family and give your map and address of your accommodation to the taxi driver. This is as well a more personalized service and it will take you directly to your accommodation.
Airport special taxis price: USD $25,00
- Or you take one of the Airport Buses. These are brand new buses with air conditioner, safe places for the luggage, GPS system and WiFi access. This service is available 24 hours of the day. The buses depart from Tababela every 30 minutes and arrive at the old airport area. Then you take a Taxi outside the airport to go to your accommodation. Please make first a phone call to your family and let them know you are going to take a taxi. Your family will await you outside the house.
Airport Bus price: USD $8,00 + Taxi costs to your accommodation (depends on traffic and distance)
