We offer students the unique experience of studying Spanish in a rural setting. Situated in the mountains not far from Quetzaltenango, students have the opportunity to eat with families in small pueblos near the school and learn about the history and current reality in Guatemala for the indigenous people.
The school was established with the goal of helping address some of the harsh conditions facing the Guatemalan people. In addition to paying a fair wage, the school uses its profits to support groups and projects working toward solutions for Guatemala's social and economic problems.
We welcome individuals and groups up to 14 students.
NOTE: students should verify details with school in case they have changed since this listing was last modified.
