By choosing to volunteer in Guatemala you have an extraordinary opportunity to experience the fascinating culture of one of the most diverse countries on the American continent. Though a fairly small country compared with its neighbors to the north, Guatemala boasts a geographic and ecological diversity that far surpasses many larger countries. From tropical rainforests and beaches to volcanoes and pristine mountain lakes, Guatemala has it all! The area that is now Guatemala was once the heartland of the Maya empire. Many Maya ruins have been discovered and partially restored in recent years which can be visited on your free time. Today Guatemala is the most indigenous diverse country in Central America. Mayan culture and traditions are very much alive and many modern Maya, particularly Maya women, still wear their colorful traditional attire. By becoming a volunteer in Guatemala you will not only support the poor and disadvantaged, you will be fully immersed in the vibrant Latin American culture. ABV Volunteer projects focus on supporting woman, children and health care centers throughout Guatemala. https://www.abroaderview.org/volunteers/guatemala

Where

Quetzaltenango, more commonly known as Xela, is a beautiful city surrounded by mountains, volcanoes and laced with cobblestone streets. With several universities in the city, there are lots of young people, lively markets and colorful Mayan culture all around. Located in the highlands of Guatemala, Xela is about 2 hours (120 miles) from Guatemala City, and about 1 hour from the tropical Pacific coast. Volunteer in Xela and experience the real Guatemala. Considered a bit grittier than Antigua, and a bit less touristic, this is a good choice for a serious, Spanish speaking volunteer. There are lots of naturist options nearby hiking, mountain climbing, biking, as well as the coast nearby. The city is not too big, and not too small, perhaps just the perfect size to be 100% immersed but still see some other foreigners during your time there. https://www.abroaderview.org/volunteers/guatemala/quetzaltenango-xela
