While you are learning Spanish at Habla you have the option of staying in the home of a local family. All our families are carefully selected and we meet with all the families as a community several times a year to integrate the homestay experience with Habla’s Spanish programs. All the homes are clean, comfortable, and you will have private room. Air conditioning is optional and depends on availability. We consistently visit all of our homes to ensure your stay will be inviting.
Homestays include the following: a private, furnished room including bed linens and towels, use of common areas and resources, three meals, pickup from the Merida airport or bus station, and coordination of your homestay experience to ensure that your specific needs are accounted for.
Since all meals are provided homestay costs are per person. Families with children cannot always be accommodated in homestay environments.
• $25 USD per night without A/C
• $30 USD per night with A/C
Other Housing Options
If you would rather rent an apartment or house or stay in a charming hotel or hostel, there are many great options in Merida. Here are a few of our recommendations for our Spanish Immersion program.
