About Us

Worlds of Spain, Inc. was originally created to offer educational programs for students interested in learning Spanish while immersed in Spanish culture. However, in response to the demand, we've expanded to offer shorter (10-14 day) adventure-type vacation tours for small groups of adults who want to experience the beautiful places and attractions of these amazing countries.
