Welcome to Antigua
Just an hour from Guatemala City Airport, you’ll start and end the program with a few days in Antigua. The former capital of Guatemala, Antigua, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – an immaculately preserved colonial city with cobbled streets and ringed by spectacular volcanoes.
Antigua is also the party town of Guatemala. Cool bars and cafes boasting craft beers and single origin coffees plus lots to enjoy outside the city such as day trips to visit Mayan villages around Lake Atitlan.
You'll spend about a week here, getting stuck into Spanish lessons with our trained tutors in the morning before exploring the city in the afternoons and getting involved in cultural
activities, organised by a wonderful organisation called Cambio/Nino’s de Guatemala (NDG). NDG run a 'not for profit' commercial enterprises across the world and put all the money into funding schools for kids in Guatemala who would otherwise lack adequate education.
Homestays. You'll live with a local family, two volunteers per family.
3 meals a day cooked by your homestay family. Expect traditional food.
