Starting from Panama, we want to share these concepts with travellers, showing them how is easy to make an impact. We love to make people feel part of our community while listening to each other stories, as in the end we are all travellers discovering another piece of the world.


At X Change Panama Spanish School we want everyone to fully appreciate the beauty of this amazing country through the power of learning.
