About Maya Experience Home Stay

This experience is very new to the village and families who welcome foreigners into their homes. As a responsible traveler, we as guests must be aware of and sensitive to the culture by behaving respectfully during our time with the family and in the village.

Although shy at first, the villagers are very friendly and welcoming people.
The home stay will give you a genuine insight into the everyday lives of a local family. Meals in the home will be prepared by the mother of the family and you will have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast and dinner meals at home with the family. (Both are included in the price)
If you take photos of the people in the village, please always ask before you take them.

You might find the housing situation in San Jorge La Laguna rather basic but the reason for doing this home stay is to give a real insight into Guatemala, so you can experience the culture firsthand and interact with the local community on a personal basis.
