  Thank you very much for your interest in our programs and for contacting Guatemalensis Spanish School.

     When you send your application form with your information, we will send you a confirmation  of your reservation and complete information if you want to travel by yourself from Guatemala city to Quetzaltenango (our city), also called Xela.

     If you arrive late, we suggest that you do not travel to Xela late at night; it is better to spend the night in Guatemala city.

    We recommend that you follow the instructions (information is available if required).

     We recommend you don't travel to our City, Quetzaltenango or Xela using second class transport, named "chicken bus" it is uncomfortable and unsafe, we suggest to use the first class buses such as Alamo.

     When you arrive to the guatemalan airport, the only document you will need is your passport, normally you will be given a visa for 30, 60 or 90 days.

     The official currency in Guatemala is the "Quetzal" and the most accepted international currency is the "American Dollar".

     If you arrive late in the afternoon or evening to Guatemala City, we strongly recommend that you stay over in Guatemala city and do not travel to Quetzaltenango during the night. 


Registration was very easy, and the staff friendly. I appreciate the extra services, free internet, etc.  Over all, a very worthwhile experience. I would like to have had more time to stay at Guatemalensis. Gene Trantham, U.S.A.
