Where is Guatemala?

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

We often get the question “Where is Guatemala?” when we first start talking to someone unfamiliar with CoEd’s programs. Of course the simple answer is the geographical location—directly south of Mexico in Central America.  But if you allow us to be sentimental, mushy gushy for a moment, the truer answer is that Guatemala remains in the heart of each visitor she receives.  

Where is Guatemala

The more than 650 people who have volunteered in Guatemala on a CoEd Snapshot Tour will certainly agree. Some of those travelers have more than 20 tours under their belt, while others have traveled but once for a glimpse into the Guatemala’s cultural richness.
