This was my third time to Guatemala, and I absolutely love it there! Guatemala itself is a beautiful place to be, but it's truly the people you meet in Guatemala that enrich your experience! I have never met such grateful, appreciative kids, and there's no way anyone could leave them without wanting to return. The local team are fantastic and offer great opportunities to learn Spanish and make the most out of your time in Guatemala in many ways.
