- Hola,
The best Spannish classes are given in Antigua. A very good school i can recomend is www.learnspannishinguatemala.com www.acad.conexion.com It is good to live with a local family to practise you're Spannish. At el paredon surfcamp www.surf-guatemala.com is the best spot for surflessons in Guatemala and you can practise your Spannish as wel. From Antigua they also offer special weekendpackages if you email them.
Goodluck,
Andrea
