  • Description


    We are a young couple that owns together a small art-guest house in the center of Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. My boyfriend is from Guatemala but lived in California for a while and speaks great English. I am a fashion designer/artist from Puerto Rico, I studied and worked in New York for more than 6 years and now have been living in this charming city for more than 6 years. Our project has been going for almost two years and now because of Covid we have had to make a few changes. We were closed for 9 months and now with re-opening we need help of this beautiful community.

    We are 4 blocks away from the Central Park, very close to everything. The house has two outside spaces, new beds, new bathrooms, hot water, and wifi. You will get a private room, breakfatst and a shared bathroom (only with our staff/ no guest). We also pay for 2/3 hours a week of Spanish classes with the best teacher in town and we can practice with you as well or language

  • Help


    We are now looking mostly for someone that can help us with day shifts and night shifts (no later than 10pm) with reception work and helping guests around. We only have 5 rooms, so we are not a very busy and our guests are normally great. Most of the work will just to help us with check in, recommendations or giving directions to guests. If we dont have guests, you can always help out with gardening, computer work or just chilll. We also work here and will make sure the work load is not too much, we would love for you to enjoy Xela and work on your own things as well.

    IF YOU SPEAK SOME SPANISH IT WOULD BE GREAT, IF NOT WE CAN HELP. Just let us know ahead of time.

    We are also always in the look for muralist, photographers, writers, videographers, carpenters or someone just willing to help out. If you have any other skills not listed here or have additional needs, please contact us and let’s talk about it.
