ACADEMIA STUDENT RESIDENCE IN QUITO
These accommodations are located next door to the Academia Latinoamericana. They provide students shared and single rooms which include a lounge with a small tv-radio, a stoked kitchen & a fireplace.
Students can bring their own laptop and have free unlimited access to internet.
Easy access to public transportation, lots of restaurants and a very good one just across the street from the Academia and the student residence.
We are also very close to the Carolina Park, which is a large recreational park where Quito goes to relax outdoors. On weekends the park is buzzing with soccer matches, volleyball games, skateboarding, outdoor aerobic classes, paddleboats, family games and picnics. A botanical-orchid garden and dinosaur museum have also been recently added to the park.
Several of Quito’s major shopping centers surround La Carolina including the Quicentro, Megamaxi, El Jardin, el Caracol and Inaquito. These shopping malls, as well as supermarkets, offer a variety of both local and imported goods. Going east we can also find the Metropolitan park – the biggest green area in Quito – which is a great place to go jogging, running and mountain biking while having a fantastic view of the valley of Quito.
Host Family / Homestay
Host family accommodation in Quito with a private room is included with all weekly rates, providing a loving, attentive home network. Breakfast, dinner and laundry service are provided by your family. Only very few host families live more than a 10-20 minute walk or bus ride from the school. Singles, married couples and parents with children can all be accommodated. Hotel accommodation can be arranged if desired.
It is a very nice gesture if you bring your host family a little gift from your home. This may be anything typical from your country or city, such as chocolates, candies, postcards, calendars, etc. …any little souvenir!
Airport pickup: Upon request your host family will pick you up from the airport. Extra fee: $ 20.
