For anyone looking to take Spanish classes in La Ceiba, there are a couple of choices. Central America Spanish School (Av. San Isidro between 12 and 13 Calles, tel./fax 504/440-1707, www.ca-spanish.com) has offices in La Ceiba and the Bay Islands. The bright, motivated, small staff offers 20 hours of individual classes, as well as a homestay with a local family, for US$220, or US$150 without a homestay.
