That said, I am not personally aware of any actual immersion programs here on the island. There is one in Playa del Carmen but that's not the best local to hang out with a little kid in my opinion. It's a younger, wilder crowd with a very strong European component.

Again to clarify -- the majority of weekly rental homes are in the Corpus Christi area. There are lots of lovely places there But for your purposes, its awfully residential with fewer little bodegas and other types of stores and there are a lot more foreigners. That's why would look for pretty much any other neighborhood. For sheer density of little stores and to be close to the plaza and with lots of Mayans and Mexicans out on the street all times of the day, cantinas, etc. etc., I would look for something between Avenida 45 or so to the east, Calle 14 Norte to the north and Calle 11 to the south. Ideal is Avenida 35 or lower and between around Calle 7 Sur and Calle 10 Norte.
One way the city is divided is between Sur and Norte. Anything north/norte of Benito Juarez is North -- so Calles 2,5,6,8,10,12,14 and Airport Blvd are all labeled Norte. South of Juarez the parallel to the ocean Calles re labelled Sur and run Salas, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 etc. Anything south of Calle 11 Sur and west of the 30 Avenida is the rough borders of the Corpus Christi neighborhood. Where, for your purposes of language immersion, you might not want to stay as its very quiet and residential so not much opportunity to interact with locals.
