Why Cuernavaca?

The ultimate location for Spanish immersion

Cuernavaca, a hidden gem in Mexico and just one hour south of Mexico City, stands out as the ultimate destination for Spanish language immersion, offering unique advantages that make it exceptional. To begin with, Cuernavaca’s serene atmosphere and smaller size provide an ideal environment for focused language learning, far removed from the hustle and bustle of larger urban centers. The limited presence of English-speaking tourists and residents makes Cuernavaca the perfect setting for achieving complete Spanish language immersion, allowing our participants to dedicate themselves to their language journey without the distractions of English-speaking interactions.

Cuernavaca’s close-knit Spanish-speaking community facilitates authentic interactions with locals who are eager to engage in conversations with language learners. This contrasts with the fast-paced and cosmopolitan environment found in larger cities, which might hinder opportunities for immersive language practice.

The city’s rich historical significance and cultural heritage, deeply rooted in ancient Aztec traditions, provide a unique backdrop for language learning. Exploring historical landmarks and participating in local festivities allows learners to embrace the Spanish language within a context that enriches their understanding of Mexican culture.

Embrace the charm and advantages of Cuernavaca with Iguana Abroad – a perfect haven for Spanish language enthusiasts seeking an authentic and rewarding immersion experience in the heart of true Mexico, where you can truly experience the authentic culture and lifestyle of this stunning country.

What do our previous Iguanas have to say?

"Being a basic Spanish speaker and learning it here, I've learnt so much so quickly, and you kind of learn without realizing it... It's just the total immersion. Practicing from the first thing in the morning with Olga (the breakfast chef) until the activities in the evening."

"The level of communication leading up to the trip was brilliant - all the help I needed was always so close. Some of the smaller parts of the course were actually some of the most important to me in the end, like the airport pickup, things like the pre-arrival handbook, the accommodation booklet - just that feeling of being safe and that everything was so well planned."
"Iguana Abroad has been unique because it has given me the opportunity to live and integrate myself into the culture here... Undoubtedly my level of Spanish has improved merely by being here, being exposed to the language, to the culture, and everything that comes with it. It's really given me a huge amount of confidence. I've absolutely loved it"

Giving back to the community

At Iguana Abroad we are extremely proud about our contribution to the local Mexican community.

During Iguana Abroad we partner with many local artists, businesses, artisans and traders to provide our series of immersive midweek events and weekend trips. We always choose to work with small independent providers rather than large businesses or international corporations, so that all the money we spend during the course of our programs remains in the local community, stimulating the local economy, boosting the local artisan network  and providing support for local indigenous groups.

We are also pleased to encourage homestay accommodation during Iguana Abroad, during which participants stay in the homes of local Mexican families and contribute directly to the household’s domestic income. As well as facilitating authentic cultural exchange and sharing of cultural values, Iguana Abroad ensures that all the money paid by participants for homestay accommodation goes directly to the host family. Ultimately, we believe our homestay network is the most authentic way to give back to the local community and make a real tangible difference to the lives of local Mexican families.
