A small room in a 2 bedroom house with spacious garden, close to Antigua, Guatemala, very quiet Local town. A very nice family whose Mom is a wonderful cook. The 2 kids are now 16 and 18 years old. Want to practice Spanish? Dogs and one cat.
It is in a village where very few Foreigners live, so you get a lot of Spanish practice. When you want to speak English you can go into Antigua, Guatemala only 5 miles away. ..............
Guest will have access to everything except the families private room and bathroom.
Interaction with guests
The Family speaks only Spanish but they are happy to speak with you in a relaxed manner to help you with your practice if you need to.
Other things to note
Public Bus is easy from Antigua. Take the San Antonio Aguas Calientes Bus for Q3. Or you can get a motor taxi (tuk-tuk) for Q15-30. You need to stop at the Swimming pool in San Lorenzo el Cubo, before arriving to San Antonio AC, ask the drivers they are very helpful.

I grew up in a small town in Colorado, USA and learned Spanish really just to not have to take it in College. I still had to take it to graduate and found out I loved it!! I moved to Guatemala in 1987 to start a White water Rafting company, which also morphed into travel to the Volcanos and to the Maya Ruins and the Maya of today (Maya Expeditions)
My husband, Les Mahoney, founded Copper Canyon Adventures back in 1999, and we have together helped over 2300 people experience the amazing Copper Canyon. Stay at our house in El Fuerte, and we will be happy to give you the benefit of our 17 years of experience there and the Copper Canyon.
We also have a little house in Guatemala, if you are visiting there and would like to get to know our family there!
