Spanish course in Havana, Cuba
Soak up the fiesta atmosphere as you study on a Spanish course in Havana! Cuba’s capital is a city of contradictions, where ancient African religious rituals take place against a backdrop of grand churches, and laid-back days erupt into wild nights out. The home of salsa and mambo offers you an amazing array of nightlife. Delve into the history and colonial splendour of Cuba with a trip to Old Havana (Habana Vieja), or unwind on the blissful Caribbean beaches just outside of the city.
Along Havana’s coastline runs El Malecón, the four-mile long promenade at the heart of city life, where you can put your Spanish to use with local ‘habaneros’. Typical of Havana is Callejón de Hamel, a remarkable backstreet that brings together street art, music, religion and various cultures.
