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

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.
