  • Description


    Hello everyone. We are a family that lives in Cobán Alta Verapaz; And we have the desire to have someone who can teach us the English, German, French or Italian idiom.

    Cobán is a town located 220 kilometers from Guatemala City, at an altitude of 1350 meters above sea level, we have a humid tropic climate and maintain an average temperature of between 12 and 28 degrees Celsius. There is a lot of vegetation, flora and fauna in the place. The culture of our town is very rich in customs and traditions.

    In our house live two children, is a house of 320 square meters located on the outskirts of the village of Coban, in a quiet and beautiful, with accessibility to all the attractions of the village, shopping malls, restaurants, bars and nature reserves.

    We would like the person who is interested to have knowledge of gardening since we have love for nature and we would like to be able to strengthen the little knowledge that we have of this and to be able to apply improvements in our garden. But mainly the interest of having someone in our house is to learn a foreign language.

    We are a family that likes good food, since we have dedicated ourselves to the service of hotels and restaurants, we like to cook, drink wine and beer in reasonable measures. We have a room available inside the house with private bathroom and complementary services.

I would live with our family and we would have the opportunity to exchange moments cooking, drinking some wine or beer and living as a family.

    If you like sports we can also practice it together and know the places that in Cobán exist for this. Similarly if you can not speak Spanish, we speak English to 40% which helps us in some way to meet the objective of learning the two parts, that is, we can teach you as much as possible the Spanish Language.
