Guatemala PROGRAM

Guatemala, a hidden gem in Central America, is a captivating blend of ancient history, vibrant traditions, and breathtaking landscapes. Known as the Land of Eternal Spring, Guatemala invites visitors to explore its enchanting beauty and immerse themselves in its rich cultural heritage. The country's past comes alive at every turn, from the magnificent Mayan ruins of Tikal and El Mirador to the colonial charm of Antigua Guatemala, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Guatemala offers diverse natural wonders, including misty highland valleys, majestic volcanoes, and serene lakes. 

 

The warmth and hospitality of the Guatemalan people, along with their vibrant indigenous traditions, colorful textiles, and flavorful cuisine, create an unforgettable experience for those who venture here. Guatemala captivates the senses and leaves a lasting impression.

 

If you're seeking a truly immersive and transformative journey, consider joining one of our two Guatemala Programs in the winter of 2024. Explore the beauty of this extraordinary country, create lifelong memories, and embrace the spirit of adventure. Please attend one of our upcoming information sessions or contact us directly for more information.

Additionally, DACA participants are responsible for the following: 

 

  • The Advance Parole application (form I-131) filing cost is $575, and attorney fees may vary depending on the firm.

 

Culturally Travel has identified accredited and affordable immigration firms that can assist accepted participants in completing this process. 

  • The cost for advance parole form I-131 and legal representation is paid directly to the immigration attorney by the participant.

  • Note: some immigration firms might be willing to represent accepted participants pro bono. This means participants only need to pay their I-131 application fee ($575). 

 

We want all participants to feel safe while traveling on advance parole, and therefore, Culturally Travel requires participants to have an accredited immigration attorney represent them on form I-131.

The application will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. You will provide us with general information about yourself, two emergency contacts, and some short answers about why you are interested in participating in the program.
