NRCSA Center: Centro Internacional - Merida, Mexico  


About the NRCSA Center

The Center has been exclusively devoted to the teaching of languages for more than 20 years and is fully accredited through the Yucatan Secretary of Education. Instructors are experienced native-speakers, well-trained and enthusiastic about their profession. Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced levels of study are available and groups are quite small allowing for maximum individual attention.

The Center has three locations in the city of Merida: Centro, the downtown school, is air conditioned, located in a commercial building, and has a language lab and small resource area. Its in easy access to the many attractions of the city itself.

Students are welcome to request either the downtown or suburban locations - but the school reserves the right of final placement.


About Merida

Rich in history, abundant in subtropical beauty, and serving as the gateway to the world-famous Mayan archaeological ruins, Merida is only minutes by air from the Gulf Coast of the US and is convenient by land or air to the beach resorts of Cancun and Cozumel. The "Land of the Mayas" is a favorite of archaeologists and historians, and for everyone it offers a fascinating past-to-present view which is unique in all of Mexico. Today, towering pyramids, ceremonial sites, palaces and imposing temples are scattered throughout the region, some still to be excavated. At every stop, you'll gain a wealth of information and insight into lifestyles gone or nearly forgotten. Thanks to Merida's warm and humid climate, the town is bright with flowers, and life moves at a leisurely pace.

Merida is located on the southeastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, placing it only minutes by air from the Gulf Coast of the United States. The Caribbean resorts of Cancun, Cozumel and Isla Mujeres can be easily reached by land or air. Several major airlines have direct or one-stop flights to Merida from Miami, Houston, New York and other U.S. cities. Students who advise the school of their exact flight information at least 10 days in advance of arrival will be picked up at the airport and transferred to lodging at no extra charge.
