Outside the Classroom
Panajachel and Santiago are two areas that are accessible within a half hour that have large open air markets that are mostly devoted to the Guatemalan art of painting and also their amazing textile work.
There are many activities in close proximity to our school. Orbita is only meters from the lake, and a number of Kayak rental locations.
A twenty minute kayak ride will land you in San Marcos and other small beautiful villages on other side of Lake Atitlan.
If you prefer adventures on land, there are several different hikes in the area, such as: Climbing the “Indian Nose” Mountain face or Volcan San Pedro.
