Santiago, Cuba's second largest city after Havana, is also the capital's rival in terms of music, literature and politics. Often dubbed as the most "Caribbean" of Cuba's cities, its 420,000 residents - of Haitian, Spanish, French and African descent - share a common bond: a reputation as happy, laid-back and welcoming people.
Santiago, located on the southeastern end of the island, maintains a historic, Spanish colonial feel and is devoid of the 1950's American high-rises with a presence in Havana.
The weather and location make beach-time possible all year-round, and its large and natural harbor - a beautiful setting for a stroll - is the very aspect that has made Santiago an important port city for nearly five centuries.

Enforex Santiago de Cuba is unique in that we do not have a central school. Instead, we provide an intimate, personalized learning environment organized by our well trained, highly educated teachers of Spanish as a foreign language.
Classes are held either in the teacher's home, in the house of the host family or, for certain mini group courses, in a cultural center. All homes and centers are located in the "Reparto Sueño" neighborhood, a safe, hospitable area.
There is no minimum age to learn Spanish in Santiago de Cuba..

Staying with a host family in Santiago de Cuba and participating in their day-to-day life is the best way to learn the language and discover Cuba's culture.
You can choose between a double (only available when two people are traveling together) or single room, and a half board meal plan is included for both options.
Each Thursday at 8:30pm, our participating students gather at a meeting point to arrange plans for the weekend. That way, students who want to embark on the same excursion can travel together and cut transportation costs. Taxis tend to be the best mode for transportation to sites around Cuba.
During the rest of the week, students gather at a meeting poitn each night at 8:30pm, when they can figure out the evening's activities- what to do, where to go, etc.
Some of the more common of our activities in Santiago de Cuba include: guided city tour, beach trips, swimming pool, party night, horseback-riding, snorkeling, boating excursion, music and dance classes and trips to other Cuban cities.
Prices average around $25 US for day trips, and about $50 US for weekend excursions.
