Our schedules are fixed, but we can be flexible to adjust to your time and your particular touristic interests during the week. The destinations can be private or semi private (using tourist buses or public transport). You don't need to form a group to travel with us.
For this program we suggest you begin the travel to your chosen touristic place on Monday morning and return to Antigua on Friday evening. The traveling week includes hotel accommodation (price included in the total fee), and all the transport needed, plus 20 hours of grammar and many hours with a teacher's company, who will guide you in your shopping and other activities.
