Una Vaina Bien is the best place to learn Spanish/Dominican in Cabarete! Mechi helped my spanish a lot and made me much more confidant actually using it. I also learned lot about the Dominican Republic during my Spanish lessons. The lessons are right by the beach too which is exactly where you want to be while you’re on vacation!

Mechi has a fun and vibrant personality! She makes Spanish class interesting and always ties her verbal lessons back to a specifically Dominican conversational context. Mechi has extensive knowledge of BOTH English and Spanish. For me, this was a key element in accelerating my learning. Mechi’s unique perspective and deep appreciation for the Dominican culture makes her cultural immersions an experience not to be missed. If you want to visit the DR and actually live and breathe the DR….go on a walking tour or take a cooking class at Una Vaina Bien. Definitely looking forward to returning to Cabarete and continuing my lessons!
