About this trip

Experience nature, culture, and Spanish language learning on our 12-day/11-night immersion trip to Guatemala. 

This trip is designed for students at the Advanced level, with nearly all activities conducted in Spanish. Your program directors, Chelsea and Chiva, will be available to provide translations and language correction when necessary. 

Our classroom time will be limited to 10 hours throughout the duration of the 12-day trip. In class, we will learn about Guatemalan history, politics, and culture and enjoy open discussion and debate in Spanish. The remainder of the trip will be filled with opportunities for practical application of Spanish, be it in a cooking class, on a jungle hike, at the market, or during an overnight homestay in Lake Atitlán.

For those interested in joining our Spanish Immersion trip in Guatemala, we will be hosting two Discovery Calls via Zoom.  These calls consist of a brief presentation as we walk through the itinerary together before opening up the session to questions and general conversation.

The Heart of Travel was born out of a deep-rooted love and passion for travel, art, history, food, nature, culture and adventure as well as a call to give back to the communities and people that had already provided us with so much. The travel industry has long been bombarded with double decker tour busses, beach front resorts and cruise ships, often at the expense of the local communities. As a response to this failing system, we began a boutique travel company that allows clients to explore new places in an authentic and non-touristy way, offering travelers a more intimate and unique experience all while removing the stress and hassle of researching, planning, bargain hunting, reserving and more that goes along with planning a trip or vacation.


We had an amazing trip with Heart of Travel! We were able to experience things we would have never been able to do without their help. Our hike up Volcan Acatenango was an exertion we will never forget. Heart of Travel took care of the details for us, making the trip smooth and simple on us. I highly recommend booking an experience with them.

This was my second trip with Heart of Travel and it was perfect in every way. The Parque Hotel was beautiful and in a wonderful location. Dylan and Daniel were the best guides and Allie—an added bonus— The Heart of Travel’s photographer. Daniel, the local guide, is so knowledgeable that you will learn so much from him. Dylan also. The Restaurant’s Chelsea picked were all different and wonderful. Lisa, our food tour guide, gave us the best experience at The Market we went to. I loved Mexico City and I look forward to my next journey with Heart of Travel—where ever that may be. Thank you Everyone who made this trip so perfect and memorable. CRP

Even though I speak Fair Spanish, I was a little intimidated to tour Mexico City on my own, given the size and complexity of getting around. Our tour guide showed us the best of Mexico City, with no hassles.

Fun, Fun, Fun! We traveled with The Heart of Travel, our favorite for Spanish-speaking destinations. We had a perfect mix of history, culture, learning, sharing, and food and drink. Día de los Muertos at the cemetery was very special. Our accommodation at an AirB&B was perfect for our group. Our local guide, Gabo, and Heart of Travel guide, Ana, are the best.
