Amazonas – a magic world

If you want to visit one of the most beautiful places on earth while
getting to know a completely new culture and learning spanish this is
the place to go. My ten weeks in the city of Leticia can only be
described as Amazing, as is appropriate considering its location in the
centre of the Amazon rainforest.

The sheer beauty of the location – the views, the plants, the animals – is enough to satisfy the most demanding traveller. But more than the beauty, what was so incredible about the journey I made, is how I learnt about and became a part of what to me was a completely new and different culture.

Feeding monkeys, visiting a serpentarium and seeing a horned frog, spending a day in a colombian day-care-centre, going to a carnival across the border, in Brazil, dancing the traditional Latin-American dances, going out with local friends, going along the amazing Amazon river, eating the traditional breakfast for kings, going by “moto-taxi”, crossing the borders and being in three countries in one day. I can truly say that I feel lucky to have experienced everything I have seen and done on this journey.

And none of it would have been possible without The Amazon Spanish College. Living with a host family gives you a unique opportunity to become a part of the culture as well as helping you immensely in your studies of the spanish language. More than simply taking care of your basic needs such as picking you up from the airport and making sure your accommodation is up to scratch the College is always prepared with something new to do, some new aspect of the culture to discover.

The niceness and helpfulness of the owners and staff of the College goes beyond simply giving you a place to sleep and spanish classes. They are constantly coming up with new activities and finding new ways of learning and becoming part of the culture, determined to make this the journey of your life.

As they say: “el riesgo es que te quieras quedar”. The only risk is that
you want to stay.
