Many students look for a Spanish school in South America, Central America ( Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama ) or Mexico. Of all the Latin America countries, Guatemala in Central America is the most famous for Spanish schools. It has the best infrastructure in all of South and Central America for learning the Spanish language. And there are Spanish schools to suit everyone. This website explains about Guatemala, Central America and what we offer at Jabel Tinamit. We hope you will visit us and enjoy our country.

Look at the flexibility of each of the schools; study the environment of the possible schools and check out the each schools recommendations.

Courses and lessons let you enjoy discussions, conversations and verbal exercises every day to to reinforce the Spanish learned.

Spanish classes are available during weekends and holidays so you can learn Spanish whenever you like. For total immersion you may opt to live with a local Guatemalan family. Relax and enjoy activities outside the class, giving you a chance to practice your Spanish while visiting different sights around Panajachel. Places to visit include Panajachel's market and main shopping street where you can buy unique local Mayan textiles. Swimming in Lake Atitlan is perfect on a hot day; or take a boat trip to one of the smaller lakeside villages such as San Pedro La Laguna, San Lucus Toliman, or Santiago Atitlan.

Panajachel, population just 14000, is on the shore of Lago de Atitlan, central Guatemala. It's one of the world's most spectacular natural environments. From the beach, a few minutes walk from our school, you can see no less than three towering volcanoes: Vulcan San Pedro, Vulcan Toliman and, the highest at 3537m, Vulcan Atitlan.

Within Panajachel you will find Guatemalans of indigenous and Spanish descent. Cakchiquel and Tzutuhil Mayans, from the villages that surround the lake, sell all manner of local handicrafts. Visitors from Guatemala City spend the weekend. And of course, people from all over the world come to study Spanish and enjoy the splendour of the area.
