Come for a Free Tour in English!

We are happy to offer free tours to small groups and individual visitors. Our students love practicing their English skills with foreigners! We frequently host tourists and tour groups, university groups, and religious organizations.

If you call or email ahead, we may be able to arrange a student-led tour or give you and your group one-on-one time to talk with some of our students.

On your tour you will learn about the history of the school, our scholarship program, and education in Honduras. You will hear stories about our volunteers, founders, students, and permanent staff-members, and you will get to see them in action if you come during a school day (M-F, 7am-3pm, Aug-June).

If you cannot come to campus during school hours, please call or email (2651-4149, to arrange an alternate time to tour the school.

Group Tours - Share a meal with Mayatan students!

If you have a group of 4 or more, we can accommodate a special group visit that includes a one-hour tour of campus, and a traditional Honduran meal with Mayatan students. The total cost is $10 per person, which includes the price of the meal and a small donation to our scholarship program. If you're interested in a group tour, please e-mail
