2) Stay with a local family
You'll immerse yourself in the Mexican lifestyle and Spanish language when you stay with a local Tulum host family arranged by Meztli Spanish Language School. Offering friendly and comfortable accommodations located in the town of Tulum, host families provide a single or double room, WiFi, and up to three daily meals. This homestay option is the best choice for students who really want to move quickly through the Spanish immersion process. You choose your arrival and departure dates, any day of the week is fine. Families are just a bike ride from the school and shops in town and the family will loan you the bike (saving you money on bike rental fees).
Meztli is the only school in Tulum to offer host families with over 4 years experience hosting international students. We ask each student to evaluate their stay so we can ensure that new students have a very positive experience. When registering please make requests such as vegetarian meals so Meztli housing director can make just the right selection for you.
Host family rate INCLUDES a bike to use and WiFi:
1,100 pesos per person, per night including 3 daily meals (including vegetarian, vegan)
900 pesos per person, per night including continental breakfast only (no cooking privileges in the home)
Your host family will have breakfast for you before your optional yoga and Spanish lessons begin. The mid-afternoon and evening meals won't interfere with Mexican cooking classes, Salsa classes and other daily offerings provided by Meztli Spanish Language School. And if you want to try one of Tulum's fabulous restaurants, no problem, just let your family know in advance that you won't be eating with them.
We need you to have the free texting app WhatsApp on your phone so we can connect you to your host family a week before you are set to arrive.
