Home stay

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. The host-families are all middle class and they can not wait to welcome you at their table! Over the years we have carefully selected our host families to offer you the best experience in Guatemala.

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, but always clean, and hot showers are provided. Meals are included too. If you are on a special diet (vegetarian, vegan, or you have allergies), the families are able to take this into account, that’s no problem!

The home stay accommodation is usually scheduled on weekly basis, but daily bookings can be accepted too. 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!
