“Excellent!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We stayed for two weeks in Leon, one week in the 'office' of the Isla Fundacion and one week in the 'casa'. Besides, we had a two weeks Spanish course. We had a great stay, felt very welcome and it didnt cost that much! I would definately recommend the isla fundacion!

Hands down best Salsa lessons in town. Great organization, great cause, great work, great people, great accommodations. I can't imagine a better situation for compassionate travelers on a budget.

Great salsa lessons with Jose! My boyfriend and I took two 2 hour private sessions with the foundation. It was fun and the instructions were great! Pricing was very reasonable!

“Incredible organization”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

My partner and I took at tour out to the community of La Isla which included an incredible lunch made by a woman in the community and presentation by one of the staff members. We were so humbled by everyone we met associated with La Isla Foundation from their dedication to their enthusiasm to share their work. We definitely plan on going back and volunteering in the future. Also, we spent the night in one of the rooms they rent in their building. The room was very clean and comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND making La Isla Foundation part of anyone's trip (short term or long term) to Leon!!

“Oye”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

What a great place this is. I have taken spanish classes here and I am proud to say my spanish has improved thanks to Professor Angel. He is, for lack of better words, "the man". He has been patient with me and taught me the important steps to learning the language. I can see from spending time in the office that La Isla provides a comfortable environment, and I enjoyed my time here.
