1 month Spanish immersion in Colombia

Jump to last reply

My partner and I (late 20's) are planning a 6 month tour of South America. We would like our first stop to be 1 month in Colombia learning Spanish so we can get around the continent a bit easier.

We're very interested in Cartagena but I have been reading mixed reviews about studying spanish there. Does anyone have an opinion?

Ideally we would like to be staying on the coast. I have read good things about studying in Medellin and Bogota but would like to be closer to the ocean if possible. What about Santa Marta?

We don't want to be staying in a tiny village either! We want somewhere with a bit of action.

If anyone has any suggestions about places to base ourselves and good places to study, I'd appreciate the feedback.
