Guatemala, Central America

Twice I have traveled to Antigua, Guatemala for Spanish immersion classes at La Union. I love it there! the pueblo itself is colorful and charming, surrounded by impressive volcanos—one of which I hiked to see the lava flows at night, and many native people wear traditional clothing made of vibrant textiles that reflect the Mayan culture. I’ve also traveled cross country visiting natural sites like Lake Atitlan, Semuc Champey, and the Lankin Caves and searching for rainforest creatures like Guatemala’s iconic Quetzal (a bright green, red and white bird with looooooong tail feathers). I have many fond memories from this place.
