Please note Bio-Itzá's NEW address:

Bienvenido to northern Guatemala!

Looking for an invigorating Spanish immersion experience in Central America?

We are located in a tranquil village on a beautiful lake surrounded by tropical forests and Mayan ruins. Bio- Itza is operated by local community-minded indigenous people of Mayan descent. We offer quality programs for individual students, adults, small and large groups; from beginning to advanced levels.

Bioitzá provides a one-of-a-kind experience, as we work to hold on to the knowledge of our ancestors, the ancient Maya Itzá people, as well as the natural ecosystem around us. Our integrated programs allow students to learn about our language, our culture, and our naural world, both in and out of the classroom. Our unique programs are enhanced by the peaceful, inviting community of San José, as we provide many opportunities for participants to truly experience our culture first hand.

By chosing Bio-Itzá for your Spanish instruction, you are directly contributing to the sustainable development of this Maya Itzá community, and helping to hold on to the last threads of a once-vibrant culture.
