Need a homestay in Antigua, Guatemala?

Best homestay experience!!

I lived with Silvia for 5 months in 2012 and had an amazing experience. Silvia is the kindest, most sincere person who genuinely cares about everyone who stays with her. She will take care of you and help you improve your Spanish. I have since returned to stay with Silvia for a few days in March 2014 and was just as satisfied with the experience. The best part of staying with her is the individual connection she makes and maintains with each person.

Her home is cozy and in a great location, very close to the main square. Each room is private, fully furnished, and very clean. The address is:

Calle del Hermano Pedro #D1

She offers stays with or without food. Her food is delicious! And she is more than willing to cater to picky diets/allergies (I was vegetarian for my first stay and gluten-free on my second...long story).

If you have any interest in visiting Antigua, I highly recommend staying with Silvia. Her home is perfect for Spanish learners or anyone else who is looking for a fun, affordable, comfortable place to stay for a long or short period of time.

Check out her Facebook to contact her (in Spanish preferably-a google translate message should suffice) and see how many people love her and enjoyed their stays:

Heidi, How many rooms does Silvia have in her house? I will be traveling with my 2 teenage daughters and another friend and her teenage son. We do not mind sharing some rooms. Do you think she could accomodate us?

Also is she definitely spanish speaking only, we are looking for a total immersion if possible.

Thank you for this recommendation.

Sorry for my delayed response! I didn't see this until now.

Silvia has 5 bedrooms in her home, 4 with full size or larger beds that can easily be shared.

She is definitely Spanish speaking only - this is the perfect immersion home!

I believe she would have no problems acoomodating you :) Best of luck!
