Guatemala is a unique and mystical destination that awaits travelers from all over the world. We will meet and work with indigenous communities, focusing on immersion and cultural integration. We will discover the secrets of the ancient Mayan people and their modern-day lifestyles. Enjoy local Latin cuisine, practice our Spanish, and so much more!
Ancient Mayan culture is woven into the modern fabric of Guatemala, offering a more diverse and unique modern population compared to other more touristy Central American countries.
