The Instituto Superior de Español (ISE) gives students joining the Tourist Amazon Spanish Course an excellent opportunity to study and speak Spanish in a wild and exotic environment with the comfort of the high standards of our eco lodge.

The eco lodge is located in an area of the rainforest with a great diversity of animals, birds, reptiles, and insects.

In addition to this, our eco lodge is a member of the Yuturi Conservation Group, rainforest saving program.
