Spanish School in Antigua Guatemala:
While a family homestay is traditionally a part of every immersion Spanish course in Antigua Guatemala and most students choose this option, we can also arrange a stay in a guest house for students who do not want to live with a local family.
Guest houses in Antigua Guatemala are fairly basic and the rooms they provide are very similar to those in a family homestay. The houses and rooms are clean and comfortable but not luxurious.
In a guest house you will have much less opportunity to interact with native Spanish speakers. The owner or manager may live on the premises, but generally will not be as available to chat with than the family in a homestay.
Unlike a family homestay, the guest houses do not provide meals. However, some guest houses offer optional meal plans for purchase or allow guests to use the kitchen to cook their own meals.
The guest houses we work with are located within a few blocks from the school, so you can walk to the school in just a few minutes and no lengthy bus or taxi rides are necessary.
