Guatemalan Host Families

For students wishing to quickly enhance their Spanish and learn more about Guatemalan culture, we recommend lodging with a Guatemalan family. The students receive 7 nights of lodging in a private room, including 3 meals daily Monday through Saturday (vegetarian and vegan meals can be arranged), with a hot shower and purified water.

“Locations of host families”

La Unión Spanish School offers many opportunities to live and share with Guatemalan families in Antigua, or the surrounding villages. In Antigua, Guatemala, the homes of our host families are situated in the center of town close to the location of school. Antigua is a historic city with many amenities geared for the traveler that won’t disappoint.

If you seeking a more authentic experience, you can choose to stay in the villages outside of Antigua (Ciudad Vieja, San Miguel Escobar, San Antonio Aguas Calientes and others). In these towns, Spanish is the dominant language and tourists are not commonly seen. To travel to these villages it is necessary to take a “camioneta” (public bus) which leaves approximately every 10 minutes.

If you would like to know more about the Guatemalan culture and learn Spanish more effectively, we recommend that you consider one of our lodging options. Through La Union Spanish School you can live with a Guatemalan host family in Antigua or in a surrounding town, or in our student guesthouse near the school in Antigua. If you use our transportation service we can take you directly from the airport to your Guatemalan host family at any time via safe, private transportation. The airport La Aurora is situated in Guatemala City, only 45 kilometers from the city of Antigua.
