Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

If you've always wanted to learn how to surf, then Bocas del Toro is an excellent place to start! With swell consistency over 65% for 6 months out of the year and average swell height of 6-7 feet, Bocas is great for beginner to intermediate surfers. You will be able to learn the basics from a certified instructor, as well as have tons of fun doing it!

The surf course is 5 half-days so that you can combine them with Spanish lessons. The cost is $195 plus 7% sales tax with Escuela del Mar (Surf School), or $225 + 7% sales tax with Mono Loco Surf School. There is also the option of having 3 half-day lessons at a price of $125 + 7% sales tax (Escuela del Mar) or $135 + 7% sales tax (Mono Loco).

The Spanish courses are in our Group 4 course, which is 20 hours per week (scheduled normally from 8am - 12pm). However, you have the option of taking Private lessons (up to 4 hours per day) if you prefer one-on-one classes.


The Group 4 classes have no more than 6 students all at your exact same Spanish level. All of our teachers are Panamanian, have college-degrees, and are full time employees at our school. We teach using the Communicative Method, which is based on conversation and activity-based tasks rather than memorization and workbook activities. You will be given an Habla Ya-created book to use during class, which is included in the course fee.

Our school is accredited by the Cervantes Institute in Spain. We are a DELE exam preparation and examination center.
