MANTA SPANISH SCHOOL

About the School

Manta's school is located on the third floor of a building only a few blocks from Murcielago Beach, the city's main beach, as well as the downtown area. The top floor is used as student residence, offered only to students studying there.  The school (and apartment) has a big balcony that looks out to the heart of the city. There are classrooms for individual lessons, as well as group classes.

About the location

Manta is a picturesque and important port on the Pacific Ocean, located in a dry tropical forest with an average annual temperature of 25 degrees Celsius (77° F).

Because it has some of South America's most breathtaking beaches, Manta was selected as the site of the sixth South American Windsurfing Championship. It is acknowledged for its diving and sport fishing. It also serves as the primary industrial port of Ecuador's tuna industry.
