Course dates, locations and fees


The residential courses at IH Montañita are held in a beautiful ecolodge location near the lively, cosmopolitan town of Montañita, where we have run courses successfully since the beginning of 2010. The Casa Cacique ecolodge is a dedicated language teacher training centre. The buildings are constucted in a typical quaint style of wood, bamboo and thatch. We offer you a private, individual cabana with en suite shower and toilet. Additional facilities include a well stocked library, wifi internet access, and printing and photocopying facilities. You are just a few minutes walk from a pristine South Pacific beach. 


The course fee for 2017and 2018 courses is US$2195.00.  Accommodation, three meals, and most materials for the course are included. Payment can be made by electronic check to our account in the United States, by PayPal, or by direct deposit in Ecuador.

Courses are typically booked several months in advance so please apply early!  You incur no obligation or expense by applying, but it does allow us to hold a place for you on the course you prefer. We accept only twelve people on each course. Once you are accepted, we request that you pay a US$595.00 deposit on the course fee to confirm your intention to enroll. Payment of the remaining balance to confirm enrollment then becomes due eight weeks before the course starts.

The deposit is non-refundable, however, we can sometimes switch people to later courses when there are spaces available and as long as we are informed with at least one month notice so we can try to fill the space created by a switching applicant.
