"It was a wonderful time. The school was very well organized and welcoming - very personal. It didn't feel like a business, I didn't feel like i was a client; it felt like a friendship. Because that's what it was - a friendship. The small village was a wonderful contrast to bustling city of Antigua. The immersion into the language and culture of Guatemala was amazing."

Jameson B., London

"As a Spanish teacher, who has both studied and traveled throughout most of Latin America, I was very pleased with my experience at the Mundo Maya Ecological Spanish School. Our hosts helped us to understand the Mayan culture through our visits to popular tourist sites, like Tikal (only one hour away) and lesser known sites in the area."

Daniela B., Boston

"I could probably go on forever about how amazing San Jose, Peten and Mundo Maya are; The beautiful lake, the friendly people, the caring host families, the little shops, and the extremely friendly and personable teachers. Just thinking about it sends a rush of emotion through me. Even months after staying in the town, attending the Mundo Maya Language School, I often think about my host family."

Sam L., Berlin

"Being immersed in the language and the culture for just the short amount of time that I was there- 2 weeks- had a noticeable effect on my ability to communicate with others using the spanish language. The wonderful teachers, hands on activities, and beautiful view from the school set for a great and natural learning environment and I would highly recommend it to anybody."
