Huatulco Beach - TEFL Course
Bahias de Huatulco (Bays of Huatulco or Huatulco Beach) is a beautiful beach town in southwest Mexico on the Pacific Coast. The area is well known for being safe and friendly. Besides 7 bays and over 20 amazing local beaches for sun-bathing, swimming, snorkeling, fishing and surfing, the area has sprawling pre-Columbian ruins and a national park with pristine beaches only available to those willing to hike through the rain forest to reach them. Coral reefs, diverse flora and fauna, as well as local Oaxacan food make this destination a fantastic option for taking your TEFL certificate course. We're located in a modern building which also serves as a language institute for English and Spanish.
The meaning of Huatulco, or Guatulco Coatulco is, "where they worship the tree", referring to an ancient legend.Hernán Cortés conquered the town of Huatulco on 8 January 1539.
Its sea breeze will fill you as the last sun rays leave their essence on your skin; that is how you will feel in any of Huatulco’s nine bays which stretch 20 miles along the coast: San Agustin, Chachacual, Cacaluta, Maguey, Organo, Santa Cruz, Chahue, Tangolunda and Conejos.They are altogether called Bays National Park and they were declared a protected reserve. Each one displays natural beauty in its own way. Huatulco is an earthly paradise.
Featuring stable, hot temperatures all year round, its ecosystem includes mahogany, cedar, cashew and many other species of tree. Wildlife includes squirrel, opossum, skunk, raccoon, coati, ringtail, armadillos, ocelots and white-tailed deer.
Known today as the Mexican Turtle Center located in Mazunte, the site is considered one of the most important sites for the conservation and reproduction of these species. You will be amazed by the hatching eggs and slow parade of the baby turtles into the sea as they begin their life. It has diverse activities like diving by its beautiful reefs, kayaking in its rapids and sport fishing. Stop at one of the thirty-six unspoiled beaches and walk along the shore. Relax on the beach, take a dip in the crystalline water or snorkel in one of the most important coral reef systems of the Mexican Pacific.
Huatulco can be reached by air from Mexico City. The flight is only 50 minutes and several airlines offer daily flights. Our staff will assist you with airport pick-up and accommodations. We offer homestays, hostels and a "TEFL House" for those who prefer to live with other TEFLers. Homestays include a private room, shared bath and one meal per day with the family. Homestays cost $395 per 30 nights. Our TEFL House has private and shared rooms, ranging in price from $250 to $400 per 30 nights.
Huatulco has a population of approximately 50,000, so it's big enough to have nightlife, yet small enough to walk from the city center to several beaches and a small mall within 30 minutes. Local taxis cost approximately $2 for rides in the main parts of the city.
We also work with the Oaxacan state university system and Extreme Learning Centers in Peru and Mexico to provide job opportunities after successful completion of the TEFL course. If you're considering earning your TEFL certificate, teaching English abroad and experiencing a month in a beautiful beach town that is off the beaten path, we're the place for you!
