Notes about the schedule:


  • The Colibrí Spanish School has a monthly program for the socio-cultural activities.

  • If you do not participate in these planned activities, the activity cannot be rescheduled and therefore we do not refund money.

  • The outside activities are done according to the schedules of the places being visited; for example, visits to the Guanuca Cultural Center begin at 8:00pm on saturday night when their evening events are planned for the public.

  • Students pay their own food and drink in every place we visit.

  • Every Tuesday after cooking classes we have a special activity to share along with Nicaraguan food tasting at 5:00pm.

  • Every Wednesday we have Latin American films.

  • Groups can request topics according to their interests for the discussion activities.

  • We organize any time discussion groups depending on the interest of the students we have.

  • Monthly we have outdoor activities to a special tour destination, for example, a visit to the indigenous weavers’ community El Chile; a hiking to the natural reserve Cerro Apante, Visit to Selva Negra farm and hotel, etc.
