Room and Board


All students will be with a host family in the village and have your own room and private bathroom. Students will be given a package on arrival that will include a map of the village, a schedule of events and classes, as well as, a key to your hosts', and you’ll be able to come and go, as you please. Accommodations range from very nice to very luxurious.

Some of the homes even come with their own swimming pools and tennis courts that are at your disposal. Most homes are within a 5-10 minute walk from the Festival House, but there will be some homes as far as 15-20 minutes away walking. Ajijic is a pedestrian village and the walks around town are colourful, safe and enjoyable.


Our meals are prepared by a wonderful chef that has been cooking at our winter Northern Lights Festival de Febrero for over 10 years. He regularly cooks at 4 and 5 star restaurants and we feel very lucky to have him. His team of sou chefs help him to create 3 fantastic meals a day for the students and faculty at the festival.
