How will I get around in Guatemala?
Walking is a great, free option in La Antigua, but buses are also very inexpensive and support staff will provide info on using public transportation or taxis. Your host family can help you with this as well. If you'd like to organize a trip on the weekends we can help with that too!
How can I stay in touch with friends and family back home?
You'll have access to a computer room and high-speed internet at school. We recommend bringing a tablet or other personal device, as computer access can be limited during busy hours, but WiFi is available. There are also plenty of internet cafés available throughout La Antigua. Please note that you may not have WiFi at your host family's home, although many do have WiFi.
You can also purchase a local phone plan while in La Antigua.
