Home stay

Staying in a local host family is the perfect way to immerse in the Guatemalan local life and culture. The host families are all middle-class families, living on walking distance or in the city center. They are all highly recommended families, where many people have had a great experience already.

The host families in Quetzaltenango or Antigua offer you a private room (couples can share a room), with the necessary furniture to make your home stay comfortable. 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!
