Homestay

Living in a host family is the perfect way to get to know the Guatemalan culture. By eating typical Guatemalan food, immersing with a new family and learning Spanish you will have an unforgettable time. 

You will get a private room in a homestay in Quetzaltenango or Antigua equipped with everything necessary to make you feel like home from day one. Bathrooms are mostly shared with the rest of the family, and hot showers are provided. Meals are included too; the families can not wait to welcome you at their table! 

Also, please take into account that in many families, (hardly) no English will be spoken, mainly Spanish. Are you unsure about your Spanish level? We can provide Spanish lessons to take next to the volunteering, or you could sign up for a free trial lesson with Learn Spanish Online!
