San Pedro Spanish School

Learn Spanish, and enjoy this incredible culture!

The very reason we exist is to Unite Cultures. We build bridges, use languages as a tool, and offer a unique cultural immersion language and experiences in the heart of the Mayan World.

Speaking Spanish can change the way you travel and

understand the cultures of Guatemala🇬🇹 & Latin America🌎

Throughout these 25 years teaching Spanish, we have realized that the bad experiences of travelers are due to poor communication.

Not speaking Spanish can make you lose a lot of time and money, but above all, lose yourself in Latin America and not enjoy the incredible cultures in Guatemala and the countries in Latin America.

The good news is that we have everything for you ready, tested, fine-tuned, and designed for people like you who want to focus on enjoying learning a language and using it on their trip through Guatemala and Latin America.
