School Location Panama

We have two convenient locations in Panama to choose from depending on your needs. Our main location is in Paitilla, San Francisco, which is centrally located in a great and safe area with easy access to public transportation. This location is in one of the best neighborhoods within the city and is within walking distance from other important neighborhoods, the financial area, the sea, restaurants, malls, bars, nightclubs, and much more.

Panama City is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city with a rich history and culture. There are many attractions to explore in the city, including the historic district of Casco Viejo, which features beautifully restored colonial architecture and a lively atmosphere with restaurants, bars, and cafes. You can also visit the Panama Canal, one of the most important engineering marvels in the world, and learn about its history and impact on global trade. With our convenient location in Paitilla, San Francisco, you will be able to easily explore all that Panama City has to offer while improving your Spanish language skills.

School Location Boquete Town

Our second location is in Boquete, Province of Chiriqui, which is located in the western part of Panama, close to the Costa Rican border. This location is situated in the center of the town, which is the safest in the entire country and probably Latin America. Boquete is a popular tourist destination, known for its natural attractions, fauna and flora. In just a few minutes, you can be in the mountains, a waterfall, or just admiring the beautiful nature and hearing many types of birds.

We offer Spanish language classes at both locations, catering to a wide range of students including school and university students, ONG and international companies, as well as retirees and digital nomads.
