The city is located in the highlands of Guatemala and is 1500 meters above the sea level. Its colonial decors and its unpaved streets will take you back in time.

Cultural integration with a local family: A learning program in Guatemala is a very humane and cultural experience due to the fact that you will be living among the complete community. The adapting skills of the student is a key point in enjoying the visit. He will live a completely different live from the one back home and he will be enriched with new knowledge from a different town. The families are chosen according to very strict rules to ensure the well being of the students. The private rooms are for the students only and is not allowed to smoke. At any time is a student taken in with another person unless is from the same group. The drinking and cooking water is purified and the families offer different types of food but is mostly regional food. .
