Our TEFL certification course in Mexico is located in the stunning southern state of Chiapas. To the east, the state borders Guatemala and the southern coastline flanks the Pacific Ocean, while to the north and west you will find the neighboring states of Tabasco, Veracruz, and Oaxaca. The training center is situated in the small town of Chiapa de Corzo which is a quiet, traditional town that provides an authentic Mexican experience that our trainees will never forget.
Although small in size, the town itself and the surrounding state of Chiapas has plenty to offer its visitors. Just an hour and a half up a nearby mountain you can get a welcome break from the heat in the quaint colonial town of San Cristóbal de las Casas. This center of local culture is well worth a visit as you will find numerous small markets and local traders offering all manner of traditional handicrafts along the town’s cobblestone streets.
Not far from San Cristobal is the popular city of Comitán, with many cultural attractions, ancient ruins and beautiful lakes that can be easily visited over the course of a weekend. From the training center, you can also take day trips to several different waterfalls in the area such as El Chorreadero and El Chiflón, both of which offer a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere that is often welcome after your hard work in the classroom.
The nightlife is fairly relaxed in Chiapa de Corzo, although there are a few cafes and bars in town where you can enjoy a nice laid-back atmosphere after a long day of teaching. But if malls, discos, and movie theatres are what you want, they are easily reached by taking a 20-minute bus ride to the nearby city of Tuxtla Gutierrez.
The ITTT training center in Chiapa de Corzo is conveniently located just two blocks from the main square, within walking distance of the homestay accommodation, restaurants, cafes, and bars. Unlimited wireless internet is available at the center for our trainees to use, although we only have a limited number of computers, so traveling with a laptop is recommended if possible.
