Accommodations


Bungalows

Live right on the school grounds, be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves and awake to a close up view of the Pacific Ocean and the waves at the Mexican Pipeline.

The bungalows are conveniently located amongst the bird, lizard and flower filled gardens of the school grounds. The school and the bungalows are less than a 5 minute walk and overlooking Puerto Escondido’s most popular beach, Playa Zicatela, the Mexican Pipeline which has plenty of shops, restaurants and internet cafes. The bungalows are also located adjacent to the bus route so you can easily jump on public transportation any time of day to get yourself around and explore Puerto.

The onsite bungalows are fully furnished, have full kitchens and baths and a full sized bed (sleeps 2) (extra bed optional). The bungalows also have 24/7 wifi access and great views of the surrounding gardens, the ocean and the sunset.

An onsite bungalow costs $30 U.S. a night for one or two people (one bed) (additional $5 U.S. per night for 3rd person or 2nd couple) $180 U.S. a week (additional $30 U.S. per week for 3rd person or 2nd couple) and $650 U.S. for 4 weeks (additional $100 U.S. per 4 weeks for 3rd person or 2nd couple).

To reserve the bungalow during the peak season (June, July, August, November, December, January or February) we will need a $100 U.S. non refundable deposit per week and the funds for your deposit are 100% applicable to your lodging. In the off season we will only need a $50 U.S. per week non refundable deposit and the funds for your deposit are still 100% applicable to your lodging. .


Apartments

We have 3 fully furnished studio apartments with full kitchens and baths available to rent. They have great views of the ocean and the point (one of Puerto’s most beautiful swimming beaches and best surf breaks) and are a 5 minute walk from the beach and less than 2k (a mile and a half) from the school and the center of tourist activity. There is public transportation from dawn to dusk that will pick you up 2 blocks from the apartments and leave you at the doorstep of the school or almost any other part of town within 5-10 minutes for under 40 cents of a U.S. dollar. To get there after dark a taxi will bring you for about $3 U.S. The family that lives next door to the apartments is very friendly and helpful and have kids of all ages so there are plenty of opportunities to practice your developing Spanish skills. The apartments cost $25 U.S. a night for one or two people (one bed) (additional $5 U.S. per night for 3rd person or 2nd couple) $150 U.S. a week (additional $30 U.S. per week for 3rd person or 2nd couple) and $500 U.S. for 4 weeks (additional $100 U.S. per 4 weeks for 3rd person or 2nd couple).

Each apartment has a fridge, a two burner stove, cooking utensils, plates, glasses and silverware, a full sized bed with sheets, a blanket, a ceiling fan, a pedestal fan, basic furniture and all the windows and doors have screens on them. There is a roofed patio area in the back as well as a fairly large back yard filled with flowering plants. Out front there is a small porch with a view of the ocean.


Homestay

If you would like to immerse yourself in the Spanish language and the Mexican culture, we arrange homestays with local families. Homestays, including food and lodging start at $150 U.S. a week, depending on the family and the amenities provided. The Puerto Escondido Language School hand-selects host families for homestays. All host families have a sincere desire to invite foreign visitors into their homes and have been versed in safe preparation of food. All homestays provide private rooms with the necessary amenities.

To reserve a homestay, a $50 U.S. deposit (completely applicable to your lodging) is required for your first week. An additional deposit of $20 U.S. per week (payable in advance but completely applicable to your subsequent weeks of lodging) is required to reserve each additional week at the homestay.
