016The teachers at SISAI rotate responsibility for organizing the weekly excursions and activities. The SISAI teachers are the tour guides, not an outside agency. Every afternoon, these privately guided excursions and activities take place in and around Quetzaltenango (Xela) plus surrounding pueblos. These excursions are in Spanish to further enhance your speaking and listening skills. You will visit exciting areas where most tourists do not go! In addition, longer excursions are organized by the school for the weekends.  All excursions are carefully planned and privately guided by a SISAI teacher.  Examples of excursions and activities that have been offered are:

  • Salsa dancing
  • Experience a traditional chocolateria
  • Visit numerous sites of Mayan ruins
  • Visit the Guatemalan Pacific coast
  • Enjoy local volcanic-fed hot springs
  • Cooking classes
  • Movie night (in Spanish)
  • Hike one of the many volcanos
  • Friday night graduation celebrations
