Setting Description:
Why Study in Antigua? Guatemala is known for Mayan roots and vibrant culture, making it a great place for adventure & language travel. Timeless architecture, archeological ruins, and volcanoes looming overhead. The Mayan ruins of Tikal are to the north, Lake Atitilan and its small Mayan pueblos are to the south, and the Pacific coast beaches are to the west. Because of its shape, the country is bordered by four different countries—Mexico to the north, Belize to the northeast, and Honduras and El Salvador to the southeast; as well as Pacific Ocean and Caribbean coasts. The country’s abundance of biologically unique ecosystems makes the entire MesoAmerican region a biodiversity hotspot. The Classic period of MesoAmerican civilization corresponds to the height of Guatemala’s Maya Civilization and is represented by countless sites throughout the country, and today “Guatemaltecos” are very proud of their indigenous cultures. La Antigua, Guatemala is situated at 5,000 feet above sea level
