Family homestay is by far the most popular accommodation option. The majority of our students choose to stay with a local family while they participate in an immersion Spanish course at Ixchel.
Living with a local family gives you lots of opportunity to practice your Spanish in everyday situations and learn about the customs and culture of Latin America.
Our host families are located in residential areas in the south and southeast of Antigua's historic center, within a few blocks from the school. You can easily walk to school and don't need to take a taxi or use public transportation.
The host families provide breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday, and breakfast and lunch on Saturday. No meals are provided on Saturday night, Sunday and national holidays.
