Host family

Carefully selected host families provide a home away from home. This gives students the opportunity to further appreciate the beauty of Mexico and its people. You can stay in a host family in a single or double room, although the double room is only available for students who travel together. You can choose between breakfast only or halfboard.

Residence

The Residence is located just three blocks from our partner school in a quaint, modern-Colonial house. You can choose to stay in an individual or double room, although the double room is only available for two students traveling together.

The rooms are surrounded by large patios and garden areas where you can sunbathe or lounge. The house has a living area where students can watch TV or movies and a dining area for the buffet style, continental breakfast which you have to book in advance. You can also use the kitchen to prepare other meals or to save and warm up leftovers.
