Instituto Chac-Mool Spanish School

With our exceptional, proven methods and native Spanish speaking instructors you'll learn Spanish faster than with any other program! We guarantee it.

Instituto Chac-Mool Spanish School began in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 1996 and since 2011 we've offered our popular Spanish courses in the Yucatan's peaceful paradise of Tulum, Mexico located south of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Our variety of Spanish language learning programs are preferred by travelers from around the world and we've taught students with origins from Europe, Asia, North America, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and the Caribbean.

Instituto Chac-Mool is a year round Spanish School. You select the date to begin (typically a Monday), the number of weeks you'd like to study, plus if you'd like to learn in a peer group setting or be privately tutored. Private tutoring may include professional vocabulary, including medical, legal, and social work Spanish. And you pay tuition by the week once at the school, it is not required in advance of arrival.

The Peer Group Classes are the most popular at Instituto Chac-Mool and offer an affordable and interactive way of acquiring the Spanish language no matter if you are just beginning to learn Spanish or at a more advanced level. Taught by highly qualified, native Spanish speaking instructors, you'll be placed in a very small group of students of your same Spanish level as arranged by our placement director.

In addition to Spanish lessons and optional homestays with local host families, our program offers extra-curricular cultural activities including Mexican cooking classes and Latin dance lessons. Free 20 minute tutoring sessions four days a week and a special Teacher and Educator's Program are offered in the afternoon. Plus mature student enjoy our course for the 'Young at Heart'. For families with children, visit for information about Spanish programs for young learners and teens.

For the weekends our knowledgeable staff can help arrange any local tours not already on the Instituto Chac-Mool excursion schedule including Riviera Maya destinations such as local cenotes, archaeological ruins, and Sian Ka'an nature reserve.


Classes are held outdoors in our rustic garden setting southwest in Tulum pueblo. Enjoy learning Spanish in the fresh air and shade and not stuck in a stuffy indoor classroom!! Our lush grounds and large porch covered with the traditional thatched roof that the Yucatan is known for, are relaxing places in which to study.

We are situated in a desirable location near Hotel Don Diego de la Selva just off the main avenue. You'll have an easy walk to downtown shops, internet cafes, restaurants, car rental, tour agencies and more. A bike ride away on a new hike and bike trail (or take a taxi) is Tulum's famous beach, widely considered one of the top 10 beaches in the world!

Instituto Chac-Mool Spanish School also has a new campus in Turrialba, Costa Rica. Visit for details.
