Guatemala is one of the most fascinating countries in the Americas and the number of travelers visiting the country has grown year after year.
The lowlands of Guatemala were the heartland of the ancient Mayan civilization that mysteriously collapsed more than a thousand years ago. The ruins of their cities have survived to this day and are well worth a visit.
The colonial era from the 16th to the 19th century left many fascinating monuments behind as well, most notably Antigua Guatemala, the former capital, where time seems to have stood still for two centuries.
Besides its unique – and often sad – history, Guatemala is also famous for its stunning natural beauty. From sandy beaches to mangrove swamps, from mountain lakes to active volcanoes, Guatemala has it all!
The unique culture and history of Guatemala make the country a wonderful destination for your Spanish course! Guatemalans are well-known for their friendliness and hospitality and will gladly show you all the attractions their country has to offer.

My experience at Ixchel Spanish School could not have been better. Because I already speak a good deal of Spanish, I had some concern about the outcome of classes.
After an hours of conversation, my teacher knew exactly what I needed. She was professional, fun to be with and an excellent teach. The flowers and humming birds provide a lovely surrounding in which to study.
I would highly recommend Ixchel to students at all levels of Spanish. I also enjoyed immensely the family in our homestay.

This is my third time to visit Ixchel Spanish School. I started out as an absolute beginner and did not understand anything.
Now I am able to converse with people in Spanish, I can express myself very well in Spanish and also understand Spanish when it is spoken. My teacher Angelica is the best. I would highly recommend Ixchel to anyone.
