About Us


As our name implies (ECELA = Español y Cultura en LatinoAmerica), we are dedicated to Spanish language instruction in Latin America. We started in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2000 and now operate six Spanish language schools in three countries.

We’d love to hear from you. Contact us to begin planning your program or just to ask us for advice on travel in Latin America. Our prices are not the cheapest, however if you plan to study for multiple weeks and value flexibility, we feel Ecela is a tough to beat.

Below are links to school details and activities & excursions. The school page includes a video presentation about the school and the activities page offers a video of the region recommended for tourists.
