  • Description

    Description

    We are an international language school and cultural center run by a non-profit organisation. We are located near the center of the village of Mazunte on the Oaxaca Coast, on a hill with beautiful sea view and always touched by a fresh breeze. Since 2013, we offer Spanish classes to travelers from all over the world and English classes for local children. We also offer another cultural activities. In our big open school forum, build with natural materials, we have free WI-FI and hammocks to relax.

    Our vision and the idea behind is, that the language school provides the financial basis for the project, which acts also as a center for a wide range of social and cultural projects in the region.
    The project was founded in 2005 by Mexican and German friends. Right now, Ana, the Mexican coordinator is long distance running the school. But Panuncio is living here PERMANENTLY. Panuncio is reponsable of gardens, cleaning, and maintainance in the school, and he keeps the money safe. Germán partners comes december to febrary.
