Ixbalanque in Copán Ruinas, Honduras is a great place to study - beautiful school building, cute town, great staff and families. I've enjoyed their weekly activities, too, and there's lots to do in the area.

2005 and 2008 collections

Central American Spanish School with bases in La Ceiba and on Utila and Roatán is a good school; in La Ceiba my teacher and host family were really amazing. La Ceiba is HOT and I'm not much of a city person, though. The islands are poor immersion environments as English is widely spoken; lots to do though (I'm a diver). I liked my teacher on Utila but they didn't offer host families; I have visited Roatán several times but haven't studied there.

I studied in Chiapas, México in 2010 and in Guatemala (which I consider to be the best and best value place to study Spanish anywhere) in 2007, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, and (soon) 14. My photos with blog and travelogue links on the main page of each collection are below in case you're interested - all my recommendations are embedded there. Happy trails!

The following are schools I’ve attended and can recommend personally.

Academia Antigüeña is a good school in Antigua, Guatemala - strong teachers, cool activities, interactive host families, though I had 3 add'l students in mine which was common. Prioritizing homestays is really important in Antigua where many schools offer stays that are more like boarding houses than family stays. Several people have complained about staying with Olga, the secretary of the school, so I'd avoid that. Familia de Cesar Sactic is wonderful. Antigua isn't a good immersion environment but it's a good place to start if you haven't traveled in CA much. Guatemala 2009 collection http://www.spanishacademyantiguena.com

Cooperativa is my home away from home, better than ever now in a beautiful new setting. Young, talented teachers, culturally important activities, interactive families (though a bit more humble lodgings than in the others), and heavy community investment. I have life-long friends there who have helped me start a non profit: http://www.becaproject.org

2007 and 2009 collections for study, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 for more local photos - I'll be at least visiting there every year and usually studying for a few weeks. http://www.cooperativeschoolsanpedro.edu.gt
