By the central park of Xela is a beautiful old building called 'Pasaje Enriquez' (seen from the inside in the picture here, and from the outside at the top of each page of the website) Utatlan is located on the second floor of this building which means that the school is within easy reach of shops, café bars and restaurants. Within the school we have an office, a main lounge area with sofa, tv and dvd player, and several different areas to have classes. We have computers for students to use and we also have WiFi. We want you to feel the school is a home away from home so even if you don't have class you can stop by to check your emails, watch a movie or have a coffee. We also have a roof terrace with great views of downtown where you can also study, or just relax in the hammock.
We also have a second location for classes called the ‘Posada’ (the Inn) which is a colonial house that we are restoring. It has a huge plant- filled courtyard and multiple rooms for classes both indoors and outdoors and we also use it for activities such as bbqs, bonfire nights and movie nights. It is 4 minutes’ walk from the main school building in the historical center of town.
Within a couple of minutes’ walk of the school locations you can find a supermarket, several banks and ATMs, local 'microbuses' to take you to other parts of town, a taxi rank and lots of cafes. If you are with a host family you will be within 10 minutes' walk from the school and as soon as you get here we'll give you a welcome pack with a map in so in no time at all you will find your way around the city center.
