Study abroad in Pichilemu
Study Spanish with one of Yalea's partner schools in the unique Chilean surf hotspot of Pichilemu.
With dark sand beaches and a town with many still unpaved roads, Pichilemu’s small town atmosphere will surprise and enchant visitors. Located just 3 hours from Chile’s bustling capital, the laidback surfer vibe attracts weekend and long term visitors from Chile and internationally. Pichilemu was originally a small fishing village, but has now been named one of the world’s most interesting surfing destinations. With cooler waters and dark beaches, Pichilemu attracts more visitors between December and March, which is when surf conditions are at their best. Here students can take the time to relax and focus on their Spanish, or even combine their language course with a surfing course.
Pichilemu itself is a small town but the region stretches as a series of smaller villages towards the famous Punta de Lobos surfing spot to the south. Vineyards, forests and the Cordillera de la Costa (Coastal Mountain Range) invite visitors to explore not only the beachside life, but also other fascinating parts of this uniquely located destination to take a Spanish language course. Calmer waters and nearby pine and eucalypt forests are also great destinations for kayaking, kite surfing, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding and wind surfing.
Take a Spanish course with one of Yalea's partner schools in Pichilemu, where you can combine your learning experience with a range of activities and practice your skills speaking with the Chilean locals.
