2019 Lufkin High School Guatemala Program

Deadline(s): TBD

Guatemala

Imagine watching the sunset melt into the teeming jungle from atop the mighty ruins of Tikal, kayaking through the blue waters of Lake Atitlán, helping Mayan families with critical community service, and examining the market in Chichicastenango. You can do all of this and more in Guatemala. From the archaic, colonial streets of Antigua to the towering volcanoes near the capital city, Guatemala is a traveler’s paradise and is an obvious choice for students interested in learning Spanish through meaningful community service. Get excited about the rich culture and natural beauty Guatemala has to offer and join us on this memorable adventure.
