  • 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 4 years. Our project is in the beginning stages but we want it to be a place with a friendly and nice ambience, where locals and foreigners can interact, exchange ideas, talk about art and most important, feel at home.

    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.

    We would love to treat this person like family and we would want you to feel super comfortable. We can also guide you around town and surrounding areas. We would love to introduce you to our friends, and show you some of the work of different projects here in Xela.

  • Help


    We have worked a lot on the house with help from our friends and family but we still need a little more help. At the moment, we are mostly looking for artists, photographers and/or videographers. People with experience in building are always welcomed as well. Sometimes we also need help with welcoming guest and taking care of the space.

    If you have any other skills not listed here or have additional needs, please contact us and let’s talk about it.
