Best Programs for Seniors

Are you over 60, reading this and wondering if language travel is for you? It is! A large percentage of AmeriSpan's customers are just like you. Did you know that the magazine International Living placed 3 countries in Latin America amongst the best 5 retirement destinations in the whole world. Did you know that SENIORS are generally treated with more respect in Latin America than in North America? Did you know that it takes less than 3 hours to fly to Central America (including Costa Rica) from Miami? Did you know that often violent crime is less frequent in major Latin American cities than major U.S. cities.

We have evaluated all of our partner programs as to their attractiveness for more mature travelers or "seniors". For each program, we evaluated four areas including the language program, homestay, school setting and the location. The chart below lists the best AmeriSpan programs for senior travelers, in our humble opinion.

Oaxaca, Mexico (click to go to program)
A relaxed city that is larger than it feels. Lots of people have retired here both from outside of Mexico as well as Mexicans from other parts of Mexico. Oaxaca has top-class museums, lovely architecture, charming inns and hotels and its own flavorsome version of Mexican cuisine. It has an international airport.
