From A to B to Xe(la)

I am departing this Friday (three days!) for a three week trip to Guatemala, the first two weeks of which will be spent at Escuela Montana. Hooray! Then my dad got involved. Uh-oh! Many, many cautionary e-mails later, I am considering hiding under the bed for three weeks and just telling people I went to Guatemala. Esperanzame, Mefites! [more inside]

How can I make the most of language immersion and the experience of spending a month in Guatemala?

What can I do (before, during and after I go) to make the most out of a month of language classes and immersion? And what else should I know about traveling alone for the first time and/or about Xela, Guatemala to help me enjoy my time there? [more inside]

Where should I spend my month of studying Spanish and volunteering-- Xela, Guatemala or somewhere else?

I'm hoping to spend a month somewhere in Latin America volunteering and studying Spanish-- where should I go? I'm leaning towards Xela, Guatemala, but open to other possibilities. Have you been to Xela and what do you think of it? Should I be worried about safety in Guatemala? Do you know a great social/economic justice-focused organization I could volunteer with elsewhere in Latin America? [more inside]
