Culture and history in Guatemala City, Guatemala

Travel to Guatemala City to study the history and culture of this unique country. Bluffton students will participate in excursions to beautiful Lake Atitlán, a region surrounded by picturesque volcanoes, as well as Cobán, a city on the Cahabón River in northern Guatemala. CASAS will help students learn about local culture and navigating Guatemala City. Stay with local families and get a taste of what daily life is like. Don't panic if you don't speak Spanish! The experience leader and CASAS staff will be available to help. 

Note: While we are planning toward cross-cultural experiences in May 2021, we will need to continue to monitor evolving conditions in the United States and other countries in the spring. There may be requirements for vaccinations that could emerge over the next months. We will stay in communication with students.
