If you want to learn Spanish in a really ‘Cuban’ location, then take a Spanish course in Trinidad, located on the south coast of Cuba. Trinidad is a beautiful example of a Spanish colonial city. This is an untouched, typically Cuban town, where you can learn Spanish whilst completely immersing yourself in the Spanish language and Cuban culture. Though Trinidad has a magnificent sandy beach, the town itself is more or less untouched by international tourism, with any modern buildings being built down by the beach, leaving the town itself completely unspoilt. The ‘unspoilt’ nature of Trinidad is its charm, with the fading elegance of its colonial buildings and the friendly nature of the local Cubans.
