Ixquic Spanish School: Antigua

Nice description from our friends http://www.mujeresmayasenarte.org/links.html  This small school, at www.ixquic.edu.gt, features highly experienced teachers and a lovely courtyard setting not far from the Parque Central.  Most of the teachers are women who worked for years at bigger schools, but then found that they needed to set up their own, independent project in order to receive fair treatment. They arrange very enjoyable outings and homestays for women, men, and families.  They can also help you find local volunteer opportunities–a wonderful way to help impoverished children, improve your Spanish, and learn more about the culture of Guatemala. Women helping women through education is a key part of their mission.
