Spring Breack 2018 Spanish Programs in Quetzaltenango “Xela”, Guatemala
WHY STUDYING SPANISH IN XELA?
There is no lack of places to study throughout Guatemala. However, Quetzaltenango has its own style and pace that sets it apart from other areas.
Quetzaltenango is situated in the highlands at an altitude of 7,800 feet. It was built on the site of the ancient Quiché Mayan capital of Xelaju. For this reason most people refer to this area as simply Xela. Today Xela is a city proud of its cultural heritages. Many of Guatemala’s best writers, musicians and scholars have lived here and call this home. It is also home to the University of San Carlos, the national autonomous university. Xela is home to many indigenous people who can be seen throughout the streets in their brightly colored clothing. Due to the number of Spanish schools found here, you will find coffee shops with good coffee and desserts, internet cafes, gringo bars, laundry mats and restaurants. However, Xela has kept the tourist market out and is just a calm and laid-back place to learn Spanish and enjoy the culture of Guatemala.
