Here's What's On Deck:
Homestays with local families, where the immersion never ends! The friendships you’ll forge will last a lifetime, and there’s no better way to practice your Spanish.
Speaking of which, you’re also getting 20 hours of intensive private Spanish lessons in Antigua, a stunning post-colonial UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Volunteer work in the community, including schools, hospitals, youth groups and orphanages. While volunteering might not change or ‘solve’ Guatemala, your students will come away with a profound appreciation of the challenges that face developing countries in Central America. It’s such a valuable experience for the thinkers and doers of tomorrow.
Your students can also participate in a volunteer construction project. Sites are chosen based on the specific needs of poorer villages in the area. We simply ask for an additional donation to the community to help pay for materials.
Authentic dance workshops and cooking classes that will bring you closer to the country’s indigenous roots
Guided tours of Antigua, as well as museum visits and a trip to the vibrant Chichicastenango market
Rewarding day trips to volcanoes, macadamia nut plantations and beautiful Lake Atitlán in the heart of the stunning Sierra Madre
A bilingual local Tour Leader who will stay with your group throughout your trip
