First of all I want to thank the whole family, it was a real pleasure to stay with you for 2 weeks<3<3<3 My work was basically to clean the dishes in the morning, open the shop, and help translate if necessary... As I understood, what is needed here is a lot of proactivity, give new ideas, perspective and help with whatever is necessary. I tried to help in the organization of the volunteering, with social media and with the english course for adults. If you want to learn about real local life here choose them!!

Muchas por todo amiga, nos estaremos comunicando contigo para los cursos de ingles.



I had a really great experience volunteering here. It's the perfect opportunity to get a unique inside look into guatemalan culture. It's also a great place to practice your Spanish. The family is very nice and always welcoming and the food is amazing. San Juan la Laguna is also one of the nicest towns around the lake in my opinion and a great place to stay for a couple of weeks.

This was an amazing experience where I got a front row seat into the host family's life. The work was not difficult but you'll need to be flexible and encouraging- especially if working with the students. The host communicated frequently, the family was lovely, and the students were so much fun to work with. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone that would like to explore Guatemala, improve their Spanish, experience different ways of life, and meet amazing people!

Muchas Gracias, espero que vuelvas pronto en nuestro proyecto



I had a really good time here! The place wasn't easy to find but after a little bit of time it worked. Daniel asked me always if everything okey and also when ever he had a new task. Daniel has a really big heart and a lot of nice ideas in his head! I think the communication with Daniel's wife would be better when my Spanish skills were better :D but I learned a lot of new Spanish words! So I can recommend this place when you are flexible and like to learn Spanish and learn a lot of the culture in Guatemala. And yes the key is: communication!! It worked out here :)

I had a great time here. The family is kind and the kids are super funny! The work was easy. Helping around the house with cleaning, upkeep at their store and if groups came in for a demo, translating. They were good about honoring work hours and if there was a different task, they always asked me if I was willing. They do not have traditional western showers, but I didn't mind that. If anything not having a hot shower in the mornings helped me wake up.
