Any suggestions for Spanish Immersion in Honduras? (or Cuba?)

Jump to last reply

Hello -- looking to do a 4 week Spanish immersion program and as I'm a beginning diver, I'd love to be near Roatan, Honduras. However, I checked out some of the sites/programs in that area and they sound very "non-rigorous". It also occurs to me that being in an English speaking diving tourist zone isn't exactly immersion.

Does anyone have suggestions about how to proceed? (hopefulist, glover?) I've heard that Guatemala is an excellent place to learn Spanish and I'd be willing to stay somewhere that is conveniently located to transportation that would get me to good diving spots if I wanted to go on weekends. At some point, my bf is likely to visit for a week so I can use that as my vacation time to dive, if necessary. Any reputable schools/programs that are convenient to access Roatan (or any other area with nice reef structure)? I was hoping for an apt attached to a family's home type of living arrangement although I realize that's getting a bit specific....

I was considering Cuba just for the historical/cultural experience but some people have told me that it's a very difficult Spanish to learn so I kinda nixed that although I'd love to hear otherwise.
