Visitors adore the small and charming island of Flores in Guatemala. Students immediately feel at home on this peaceful but lively island, famous for its cleanliness and safety.
Due to Flores's small population, visitors find it easy to get to know the locals and to practice their Spanish. Because very few locals on the island speak English, students who study Spanish are able demonstrate their abilities and work on improving their skills.
Pastel-colored houses, cobble-stoned streets and an inviting boardwalk encircling the island grace Flores. The island has well-developed hotels, restaurants, bars, and travel agencies that cater to travelers' every needs. Flores truly is a world-renowned international travel destination that welcomes visitors from every corner of the globe.
Dos Mundos Spanish School is located in the heart of Flores in a one-story colonial house, which in 2003, the Ministero de Cultura y Deportes declared a national heritage building. Our students take classes outside in the fresh air in our enchanting garden and enjoy fresh, healthy drinks at our smoothie bar during morning breaks. Some students choose to borrow or exchange books in the entrance hall of the school and plan their afternoon or weekend excursions using our activity board. Our Spanish students also enjoy a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, as Dos Mundos puts a strong emphasis on participation in social projects. We also offer daily menu specials to our students in our restaurant, the Café Arqueológico Yaxha.
Students will find everything they need within a short and safe walking distance from Dos Mundos Spanish School, including host families and student residences. This allows our students to be independent and yet accessible to new friends from the academy!
Students who wish to keep in touch with friends and family will find various internet cafés around Flores that offer international service. We give all of our students special Dos Mundos Student Cards, which grant discounts at different places on the island of Flores.
Students will also find a post office, a stationary shop for school supplies, an ATM and several supermarkets, including one that offers 24-hour service, among other shops. Most stores on the island remain open on Sundays.
