About Your Location

Founded in 1998, Spanish by the Sea - Bocas del Toro, is one of three options in Panama to take spanish classes. On the main island of Isla Colon, the school is one block off Main Street where you can easily walk to restaurants, tour operators, bank, bars, shops, airport, hotels, coffee shops, etc. The variety of Caribbean cultures native to the island mixed with its booming tourism industry creates an intriguing hub for linguistic and cultural exchange. Bocas is also a biologists dream come true. The conservation and preservation efforts have successfully protected much of the Caribbean wildlife here, including four of the eight species of sea turtles that nest on these beaches.

The largest of our 5 schools, it houses up to 30 students, a large front garden with fruit and palm trees, tropical plants, lounge chairs and hammocks for easy studying; and 8 unique teaching stations that create the perfectly relaxed environment to attend class.

Surfing in Bocas del Toro

Bocas del Toro has only recently been discovered as a surf hotspot and although it is becoming one of the most popular destinations in Panama, it is remarkably uncrowded compared to its neighbor Costa Rica. Bocas del Toro has two distinct surf seasons: the winter wet season is from November till March, when the waves are usually at their biggest, and the short summer season from June to August. These two periods are the best for those looking for more advanced surf. The remaining months of April, September and October generally have beautiful weather with small surf. The most ordinary waves are reef breaks, but there are also some beach breaks. There are few rights but the lefts are widely ranged. Bocas del Toro’s waves normally favor short boards. The nearest surf spot is located 10 minutes from our Spanish school and getting there requires a watertaxi.
