Esta fue mi sexta escuela de español y estudié aquí durante 1 mes. Guacamaya es una escuela de propiedad y gestión familiar muy agradable. Pude ver que Enrique era totalmente confiable, ya que siempre me respondió rápidamente con respuestas precisas a mis preguntas sobre los muchos correos electrónicos que intercambiamos antes de que yo llegara allí. Entendió bien el caso cuando surgió un problema menor con el lugar donde me hospedaba (que era un lugar realmente agradable, con una excelente relación calidad-precio). Enrique también me llevó de regreso al aeropuerto con tiempo suficiente para tomar mi vuelo. Entonces, entre muchas otras cosas, aquí estarás en buenas manos.
La personalidad de mi maestra realmente coincidía con mi personalidad, y ella siempre se enfocaba en lo que necesitaba aprender mientras respondía a mis solicitudes. ¡Pasamos 5 horas al día juntos!
¡Recomiendo encarecidamente Copan Ruinas y Guacamaya Spanish School para experiencias memorables y avances en tu español! Por cierto, al considerar los esfuerzos de los proveedores directos de servicios, como la familia anfitriona y los maestros, use la palabra en español "PROPINA" (para "TIP"). La cultura hondureña no se opone a las propinas. W. R.
This was my sixth Spanish School, and I studied here for 1 month. Guacamaya is a very nice family owned and operated school. I could see that Enrique was rock-solid reliable as he always got back to me quickly with precise answers to my questions over the many emails we traded before I got there. He got right on the case when a minor issue came up with where I was staying (which was a really nice place, great value). Enrique also drove me back to the airport in plenty of time to make my flight. So, among many other things, you'll be in good hands here.
My teacher's personality really matched my personality, and she always focused on what I needed to learn while also responding to my requests. We spent 5 hours a day together!
I highly recommend Copan Ruinas and Guacamaya Spanish School for memorable experiences and advances in your Spanish!!! By the way, when considering the efforts of the direct providers of services such as the homestay family and teachers, use the Spanish word "PROPINA" (for "TIP"). Honduran culture does not oppose tipping. Walker.R.

The best! I have been studying remotely with Enrique for over a year and my Spanish has improved so much! He is a joy to work with, I welcome his guidance and corrections and all the hours we spend conversing. I am so enchanted with the school that I have decided to go to Copan in the fall for a two-week immersion. I can't wait.
Love love love Guacamaya Spanish School! I've visited in person and do online classes with Karla. She's so sweet, they are amazing teachers. I started learning Spanish with them in my 30's, was scared at first but they really help you learn at your own pace while keeping you progressing so you can actually have usable Spanish depending your level. They can understand some English, but you're getting a fully immersive experience for sure, which I can't tell you how amazing it was for helped me to learn so much faster. I don't think I could find anything like that in the US in any classroom or school. While I was visiting, I even met another student from Canada who switched from a different school in Copan because she was struggling to learn anything. She changed to Guacamaya and she said that learning at here should have been her first choice. It made me glad that I chose Guacamaya the first time around. I can't wait to visit again to keep learning more. Amo Guacamaya Spanish School!

This is the most wonderful Language School I've attended, both online and in person! Copan Ruians is such a cute and safe place to visit while learning Spanish and Karla and Enrique are amazing. I've visited in person for week long classes, my Spanish gets better in just a matter of days, then I keep up with everything with their online Skype lessons which is super helpful. Can't recommend them enough. Bonus points, depending on the time of year, you might have Mangos fall right in your learning area that you can take home and eat! :-)

J'ai passé une semaine à Copàn Ruinas pour visiter et apprendre un peu plus d'espagnol. Ce fut une expérience super, autant pour la qualité des cours que pour la beauté du lieu.
Pasé una semana en Copán Ruinas para visitar y aprender un poco más de español. Fue una gran experiencia, tanto por la calidad de las lecciones como por la belleza del lugar.
I took a class with Karla for 3 weeks in-person at Guacamaya Spanish School. She is an incredible teacher and overall the school was run very professionally. She is most definitely the best Spanish teacher I have ever had (and I have had many). I highly recommend, and staying in beautiful Copan for an extended period of time is a great bonus.
My students and I had the chance to live a cultural immersion in Copán Ruinas, Honduras. For three weeks, we did cooperation work, lived with Honduran families, discovered the region and learned Spanish. We had a busy schedule and it was masterfully run by Enrique, the director of the Guacamaya Language School.
It was a real joy to live in Copán Ruinas! The tourists are warmly welcomed in this city. All the people you meet greet you and as the majority of trips are on foot, you feel immersed in the daily life of the "Copanecos". The city is very safe. We felt no tension and did not experience any incidents. I suggest you choose Copán with confidence.
To my surprise, there were many activities available in the area. We did, of course, visit the mythical Mayan site of Copán, a must! In addition, we traveled the surrounding mountains on horseback; we relaxed in natural springs; we discovered the exotic birds of the region including the magnificent macaw and we had the opportunity to learn more about the production of coffee and cocoa by visiting various plantations.
Let's not forget our cooperation work! Under the benevolent supervision of Enrique and in the company of the men of the Mayan community of Rincón del Buey, we worked on the construction of a concrete slab for a primary school. Being there, we also had the chance to work with the kids during classes. Finally, we helped a women's cooperative in Sesesmil prepare coffee plants. By living with families and working in a variety of contexts, students were able to practice Spanish and improve their vocabulary while living a unique cultural experience.
Spanish classes take place in a paradise garden. How not to mention the mango trees that fed the students during their lessons? It is a place for learning in an exotic context for Canadian students. All the teachers show great professionalism, a deep desire for sharing and a contagious good mood. Our teachers have all become friends.
Lastly, how can I not mention the invaluable support that Enrique offers to group leaders. For me, he was a friend, a counselor and even a dad depending on the circumstances. It's fabulous to have access to an expert from the region and his contacts at all times. With Enrique, and the great Guacamaya team, anything is possible! His unshakable calm, infectious smile, generosity, availability, sense of humor and impeccable organization put you in the best of hands. I hope you will have the chance to live this experience one day.
