Una semana en la selva
A few months ago, I signed up for the travelling classroom including the new option of a week in the jungle. I thought it was going to be good, but I couldn´t imagine it would be this good. First of all, the cabañas are beautiful : they are brand new, made out of organic wood and you basically sleep outside because the biggest part of the walls are made of netting. There are barrely other tourists, what really gives you the feeling of ´being away´. The classes are good and the excursions, which take place after class, are just amazing. In only one week I have made two trekkings through the jungle, I have seen an animal rescue center, I learned how to use Quichea weapons and got to know their traditions, I went intertubing and jumped out of a huge tree into River Napo. It was probably the best week of my life and that is why I´m going back to the jungle for a month! I highly recommend this to every other student who would like to be ´away´ for once and who appreciates nature. No doubt that you will have the time of your life as well!
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.
The Galápagos Islands – a unique and magical place, so take the opportunity and choose our special offer for students. We can book your trip on the Superior Tourist Class Yacht.
The Yacht was built in 1995 in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz, Galápagos. It is 60 feet long, 18 feet wide and has a capability of 16 people. A crew of 6 people is responsible for your safety and satisfaction. With the best knowledge of the spectacular islands and a lot of experience on the sea, also an English-speaking naturalist guide will accompany you.
