The classes are good and the teachers are very friendly and punctual. The food is great too.
The structure of the school is not so good. There are many problems in the bathrooms and toilet paper is not provided. Administration is very disorganized. Many rooms are hot because the air conditioning does not work.

Aesthetically, it's gritty and not exactly easy on the eye, but if you are willing to brave the traffic there are a number of fabulous beaches and dive sites nearby. There has been a huge increase in the number of English-language schools opened in the city in recent years which gives the place a growing cosmopolitan feel. Large numbers of students from Korea and China often come here to study. The City's energy is infectious and with the main airport being expanded to accommodate many more domestic and international flights, the city's prosperity seems set to grow more.
