HOW TO CHOOSE
A SPANISH SCHOOL IN GUATEMALA
Decide where you want to study
There are Spanish schools in pretty much every town in Guatemala, so the first thing to figure out is where you want to study.
The most popular option, Antigua, is about an hour from Guatemala. It’s a UNESCO world heritage listed town and appropriately pretty, atmospheric and clean.
Those who are a little more serious about travel and a little more serious about learning Spanish head to the highland town of Quetzaltenango (Xela). About four hours north of Antigua, it’s very much a Guatemalan city and much grittier than Antigua, and for me, that was the attraction.
Lago de Atitlan
More laid back and often cheaper, Lago de Atitlan’s picturesque setting makes for a pretty chilled lifestyle.

I chose my Spanish schools in Antigua and Xela based solely on recommendations from other travellers.
