A vibrant land of colourful traditions, of Aztec and Mayan mysteries, exotic foods, colonial towns and heavenly coastlines – like an exploding piñata, Mexico is bursting with energy; a true feast for the senses. And with a population of around 130 million, there are plenty of opportunities to practise Spanish here amongst the friendly locals!

Whether students prefer the hype of big cities, exploring historic colonial towns or relaxing on the beach after class, International House offers five incredible Study Abroad locations in Mexico.

From the metropolis of Mexico City with its fascinating fusion of cultures, to bustling Guadalajara, famed for being the home of Mariachi and Tequila, our big city schools allow students to immerse themselves in cosmopolitan Mexican life.

Lovers of olde-worlde destinations will be right at home in Cuernavaca and Querétaro. Known for their beautiful colonial architecture – plazas, haciendas, palaces and churches – these smaller cities are perfect for exploring. Or for students who are fans of beach life, the town of Playa del Carmen and IH Riviera Maya offer a laid back Caribbean experience.

From standard to intensive, business Spanish to DELE preparation, find out more about studying abroad with our Mexican schools below.
