FAQ – Prices, booking & enrollment
With a medical declaration The Amazon Spanish College will refund you at least 75% of the complete weeks that you have to cancel because of your illness.
You pay a US $40 registration fee and a $40 change fee for changes in your program after arrival, such as changing your dates or changing your accommodation. If you participate in the Volunteer Program, there is a $ 100 Volunteer Fee of which the main part will be donated to the project where you are going to work.
All payments are due on the first day of classes. The Amazon Spanish College offers the following methods of payment:
- Before arrival you can make a deposit to one of our bank accounts (US$30 extra charge) or pay through Paypal.
- If you live in the European Union the easiest way to pay is by making a European payment (cost only 1-1,5 euros) to our bank account in Sweden.
- Upon arrival you can pay in cash (we accept US dollars and Euro), we do not accept travelers cheques or credit cards at the College.
Yes, this is possible. There are no extra charges if you let us know before arrival. If you decide this after your course has started, we will charge the US $40 change fee.
No, we won’t. On National Holidays all our staff members and teachers enjoy a well deserved day of rest. However, on holidays we offer you an alternative activity, for example a cultural activity.
Of course you can. The sooner you can let us know, the better.
We are happy if you book the course as soon you decided that you want to come to the Amazon to study. If you book your course 3 months in advance you do not have to pay the registration fee $40 . However recommend you to book your course and accommodations about a month before arrival. We also do last-minute bookings. In that case we might not be able to get your Bogotá pick up package, or your preferred accommodation option.
Unfortunately we cannot book your trip from your home country to Colombia for you. You can do that in your home country with a travel agent or on the internet. Our services start at the moment you arrive in Colombia, if you book our pick up services! We recommend you to arrive in Bogotá on a Friday or Saturday, so you can arrive In Leticia one day after. All our Spanish programs start on Monday.
