The National Registration Center for Study Abroad has partnered with The Mayan Riviera Spanish School to bring students the opportunity to study the language in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Located a short distance from pristine white sand beaches, the school has designed its programs to accentuate its unique Caribbean location. The school features open-style architecture, with most classes and on-site cultural activities taking place in thatched roof learning areas called palapas, which are surrounded by tropical gardens. The school design creates a relaxed and inviting atmosphere in which to intensively learn Spanish.


1. Study Spanish at a language school located just six blocks from the white sand beaches of Mexico.

2. Enjoy studying in Caribbean-style, open classrooms surrounded by a lush garden.

3. Attend lectures in Mexican history, Zapotecan culture, and national holidays.

4. Join afternoon workshops and activities that include cooking, arts and craft, and salsa dancing.

5. Spend a few weeks living and studying in Playa del Carmen.
