Homestay or private living?

At Iguana Abroad we understand the importance of incredible accommodation. For the 2024 season we have two great options depending on your preferences – you will have the choice of living in a homestay with a local Mexican family, allowing you to practice your Spanish 24/7, or alternatively the option of private accommodation with other Iguana Abroad participants.

Homestays - the authentic mexican experience

Homestays offer the ultimate immersion experience. Live with a Mexican family in their family home during the course of your stay: experience Mexican life in the most authentic way possible, immerse yourself in the traditions of your host family and – most importantly – practice your Spanish 24/7!


For those who prefer not to do a homestay, our alternative independent accommodation can be the right option for you. For details about the alternative accommodation options for the 2024 season, please contact a member of the team and we can provide you with more details!

Which is best for you?

The style of accommodation that is best for you depends on your personal preferences, current Spanish level and your goals for the course. If your aim for Iguana Abroad is to learn Spanish as quickly as possible, a homestay is most likely the best option for you. It is total immersion.

Alternatively, if you prefer to take your Spanish learning at a slower pace and spend more time in an English-speaking environment, the independent accommodation may be a more suitable option. 

Ultimately though it is your choice. If you are in two minds or would like to speak to a member of the Iguana Abroad team please get in touch!
