The first ever language school in Boquete, Habla Ya is located in a square where you will find everything you need: restaurants, cybercafé, bank... Located on the first floor of a building of neo-colonial architecture, the language centre has a multimedia centre and 17 classrooms organized in an informal and friendly manner, allowing maximum interaction between students. Light and well-ventilated, these rooms offer all the necessary comfort and an unspoilt view over the town and countryside. After your Spanish lessons, you will be able to enjoy the recreation room to relax, surf the internet with the Wifi connection, or participate in a free salsa or merengue course - unless you prefer to chat with your friends in the kitchen over a good local coffee!

During the high season and depending on the number of participants, the school offers extra classrooms close to the main course centre.

Boquete ist ein perfekter, sehr sicherer Ort für Naturliebhaber & Personen die ihren Sprachaufenthalt gerne etwas ruhiger angehen möchten. Nach 2 Wochen würde ich einen Ortwechsel empfehlen.

Boquete est vraiment une chouette destination pour apprendre l'espagnol !Son seul défaut c'est d'être loin de la Suisse. Il y a principalement des américains et canadiens dans l'école, mais pas un problème, vu que ça m'a fait travailler une 2e langue étrangère! Le matériel de cours a été mis en place sur mesure pour chaque niveau par l'école et est super. Bons professeurs!J'ai eu la chance de tomber dans des petites classes, j'ai même eu 2 semaines sur les 4 de cours privés vu que j'étais la seule dans ce niveau! Excellent contact avec la famille, je me suis sentie tout à fait adoptée! Ils m'ont même emmenée faire des activités le w-e (piscine, visite de ville, ascension volcan..). La nourriture était bonne et équilibrée, mais énormément de graisse utilisée pour cuisiner. Tout est frit! Mais le problème n'est pas dans cette famille-là, c'est dans leur culture. Personnel très disponible et agréable!Beaucoup d'activités et excursions proposées, mais à des prix pas forcément avantageux et qualités des fois moins bonne que si on passe par une autre agence du village. (il y en a beaucoup!)

Boquete eignet sich meines Erachtens besser für Erwachsene. Würde Bocas del Toro für Erwachsene für 1 Woche max. empfehlen, da sehr viele Jugendliche nicht nur im Ort sondern auch im Unterricht sind.
