The name Guatemala is derived from the Maya word Cuauhtēmallān, meaning place of many trees. From the verdant hillsides to the plumage of the quetzal bird, this trip will offer you endless shades of green. You will spend your first weekend exploring the colonial city of Antigua and its fascinating history. Next, you will be warmly welcomed by teachers in a school located just outside of Antigua in the village of Jocotenango. You will be paired with a teacher for five full days of collaborative coaching and cultural exchange.
