Ecela - Lima, Peru
Lima is located on the central coast of Peru, touching the Pacific Ocean. The city is full of history and culture, endless beaches, hills and mountains, nightlife, the possibility to see Cuzco, Machu Picchu and much more. Although four hundred years have passed since its foundation, Lima, known as the City of the Kings, has managed to hold onto its traditions from pre-Inca and Inca times. Strolling through the streets and squares of the historic center of Lima is like stepping back in time.
Take in Lima’s colonial architecture, for which it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In almost all of Lima’s neighborhoods, you can enjoy an exciting nightlife with many enticing possibilities: casinos, discos, bars, pubs, folklore shows and restaurants where you can enjoy and dance to local music.
Our school is located on the coast in Lima, in the prestigious neighborhood of Miraflores. Just a couple of blocks from the Pacific shore. The weather is warm year round. Miraflores is one of the most secure and modern neighborhoods in Lima, with a wide variety of restaurants, hotels, discos, parks, modern shopping centers, beaches and tourist attractions to visit. It is the perfect place for a Spanish immersion experience!
