Why Spanish Adventure?

We have the perfect combination of professional teachers, immersive cultural experiences and exhilarating adventures.

Our teachers were educated in Medellín and worked at Spanish Schools in Medellín before founding Spanish Adventure.  They have taught students from over 40 countries at all levels of Spanish. 

Immersion in the local culture is a key part to enhance your Spanish learning experience.  San Carlos is known in Colombia for its many waterfalls and example of peace & reconciliation after the war.  San Carlos is a hidden gem, and has yet to see international tourism.  Learn more about San Carlos.

We adventure and explore the nature of surrounding San Carlos, Antioquia daily.  Including swimming in rivers, jumping off waterfalls, hiking  and canyoning.  Learn more about our Adventures.
