1 Day program

If you are traveling to San Jose or Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico and only have one day to spare, why not join one of Spanish In Cabo’s one day language programs? Designed for all levels and ages, Spanish In Cabo is now offering one day Spanish language programs with a difference. Start your day in the classroom with one of our qualified teachers, learn about a specific topic of your choice (including relevant vocabulary and common phrases), and then go out on an adventure to practice what you’ve learnt in the real-world. 

From ordering food at a restaurant to shopping at a mall, cooking a traditional Mexican meal to meeting some of our local artists and viewing their work, Spanish In Cabo can help you to feel more confident and comfortable navigating your way through life in Mexico and abroad. So whether you’re on vacation for a week or more, live here (either seasonally or permanently), or you just want to have some fun, we guarantee you a lot of smiles and laughs as you learn and practice your Spanish in this enjoyable and interactive way. 

Please note that while most of our program operate daily, others (like the Saturday Organic Market visit), can only be done on certain days of the week for reasons beyond our control. We can arrange each class to suit your schedule and needs, so if you would like to organise a small group or to take your classes at another location (for instance at your hotel), then just contact us directly and we organize any special arrangements for you. Prices include all teaching materials, tuition fees, transportation to and from your hotel/accommodation in Los Cabos (or for your teacher to travel to you). Prices do not include item purchased while on any excursions outside of the school. We teach rain, hail or shine, so please wear appropriate clothing for your chosen course.

We here at Spanish In Cabo are excited to offer our students a great opportunity to combine a Spanish class with a field trip to our local Organic Farmer’s Market in San Jose. Similar to our one day shopping course (Let’s Go Shopping), you’ll start your day leaning basic vocabulary and common phrases, like how to ask about an item (i.e. what an item contains, what an item can be used for etc.), what the price is, whether there’s a promotion and where it was made etc. Then, after class we’ll go together to the Organic Farmer’s Market to practice your Spanish with a wide variety of goods and services vendors. We have run this course with students in the past and we always have a lot of fun interacting with the locals. We’ll help you to make any purchases or enquiries you have while guiding you through the market so you don’t miss out on anything.

San Jose Art Walk

(every Thursday evening from November to June)

   

San Jose del Cabos is teeming with so many talented local artists that you might feel genuinely overwhelmed by the seemingly endless number of galleries to explore. To combat this, every Thursday evening 5PM to 9PM during the high season (November to June) 16 certified galleries located in San Jose's Art District (Obregon, Morelos, Guerrero and Comonfort streets), open their doors to visitors to showcase their artworks. This event is known as the San Jose Art Walk. This event attracts a lot of local and international art enthusiasts alike due to the high quality of art set in a wonderfully sophisticated environment. 

We here at Spanish In Cabo think it’s best for students and visitors to enjoy the San Jose Art Walk with a guide. Then you’ll not only see high quality paintings, sculptures, jewellery, intricate Huichol beadwork, amber and local handicrafts; but you’ll understand the meaning behind each piece, while learning about the evolution of Mexican art and culture with a local. 

We’ll also use this opportunity to, of course, practice and improve our Spanish vocabulary in a relaxing setting, strolling from gallery to gallery, asking questions to the curators and sometimes even the artist themselves about their work. So why not come along with us and enjoy a lovely evening learning more about Mexican art and culture? You will get a chance to practice your Spanish with a teacher close by to support you. 

Please note that the San Jose Art Walk member galleries include: La Dolce Art, La Sacristia, Patricia Mendoza Gallery, Corsica, Bruno Pegoretti, Mata Ortiz, Dharmesh Anand, Casa Dalhia, El Armario, Muvezi, Ivan Guadarrama, Old Town, Ida Victoria, Intagrafia, Plaza Paulina and Frank Arnold. If you have another gallery that you’d like to visit, just let us know and we can arrange to make a detour to suit your interests.

 

3 hours from 5.30PM to 8.30PM every Thursday night.

Art and Craft 

(every Tuesday and Thursday in Cabo San Lucas)

   

Looking for some afternoon fun with (or without) the kids that’ll keep both adults and ninos entertained? Our arts and crafts teachers can help you to create your very own Catrina doll while learning some basic Spanish vocabulary.  What are traditional Catrina dolls? You probably know about “The Day of the Dead” celebrations in Mexico which celebrates the deaths of ancestors. The festivities, which arguably date back 2,500-3000 years ago, were dedicated to the goddess known as the "Lady of the Dead", which corresponds to the modern La Calavera Catrina. 

José Guadalupe Posada created a famous print of a figure he called La Calavera Catrina ("The Elegant Skull") as a parody of a Mexican upper-class female. Posada's striking image of a costumed female with a skeleton face has become associated with the Day of the Dead, and Catrina figures and dolls often are a prominent part of modern Day of the Dead observances.

So come along and learn about Mexican art history and culture while making your very own Catrina doll to take home with you. You’ll hear all instructions in Spanish and our teacher will guide you through relevant vocabulary and phrases used in a classroom setting.
