Why students will love it

Guatemala is heavily colored by its dramatic history: from a millennia of Mayan rule and culture to centuries under the Spanish empire. Your students will learn a lot from Central America’s most populous country as they engage with the culture and get immersed in it, especially through helping build a home for a family in need. A trip to Lake Atitlan, one of the world’s most spectacular lakes, colonial towns and the Mayan ruins of Tikal will take you even deeper into the Guatemalan culture.
