Learn Spanish & AdventureDecember 17, 2013
Enjoy the ¡Buena Onda! of Monterrico – a hammock-swinging coastal village with Guatemala’s best ocean beach!
Monterrico sits at the heart of the Biotopo Monterrico–Hawaii, a nature reserve that embraces a 20km-long beach-blessed slice of the Pacific coast and includes a vital turtle-nesting ground, abundant wetlands and the small villages of Monterrico and Hawaii. This program can be taken for 2 or 4 weeks duration and combines learning Spanish with meaningful volunteering alternating between both locations.
In addition to intensive Spanish lessons and volunteering enjoy amazing roadtrips to explore Guatemala’s hinterland – hiking active volcanoes and learning about Mayan history and culture – and take a trip to El Salvador to explore coffee plantations, beautiful waterfalls and lush primary jungle.
