Activities give students a wider view of Guatemalan culture and history, and increase social interaction among students.

We understand that activities are an important part of time spent in Guatemala, as they allow students to see and interact in a variety of authentic experiences. Living and studying in a new place can be difficult without a healthy social environment and easy opportunities to make friends. While we certainly hope that students will go out on their own and socialize with Guatemalans and other travelers, we want to make sure that our students have ample time to socialize and make friends amongst themselves as well. With this in mind, we have designed our activities to be fun, engaging, informative, and social. Activities include excursions and tours, informative lectures, salsa classes, discussions and debates, visits to ruins and museums, volcano climbs, and visits to coffee and macademia farms. Ana, Silvia y Cristina are our activity coordinators, is responsible for afternoon activities each day. Every Monday she passes out a schedule of the weeks activities, so that students can think in advance about how they would like to plan their week.

All activities are free and optional, with some having a small entrance fee or transportation cost (usually around $1-$4). A typical schedule of activities might look like this: (free unless noted).

Trips go to Tikal, Lake Atitlan, beaches, Copan Ruinas Honduras, etc.
