    Amazing experience!

    My time with Maximo in Guatemala was amazing. I am so glad I got to volunteer with them at Casa Maria elderly care facility. Everyone where I volunteered were so kind. I miss getting to see their lovely and caring faves everyday. We did all kinds of things with the residents there, like coloring and playing bingo. They loved it almost as much as we did. I hope to come back soon!

    This course was amazing! I wanted to do a TEFL course, and at first I was thinking about doing one online or something in the states, but I am SO glad I chose to do this one instead. Antigua is beautiful on its own, and definitely worth visiting, but I thought it was such a perfect location to take this course as well. Also doing this through the Maximo Nivel program was amazing. They were very accommodating, professional, and I felt very comfortable with all the staff that were involved in the program. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone thinking about getting the tefl certificate.

    Excellent classes

    The classes were excellent! The teacher was very nice and efficient and we learned very fast. The class at Mercado San Pedro was really interesting! We tasted new fruits and learned a lot of vocabulary! The material was also very good.

    How could this program be improved?

    They could have given me the home address in advance. I would feel better knowing where I'd stay!

    Fantastic Volunteer Time Off with my Work Colleagues

    In October, 2015 I volunteered with 7 other members of my company in Cusco. We participated in an after school program for underprivileged children in the mountains outside of the city. They did a great job with orientation, preparing us the experience, and making sure we were comfortable and taking full advantage of all the various opportunities (including learning Spanish) along the way.

    At the end of the week, they put together all the plans and tickets for us to go to Machu Picchu, where we also climbed Huayna Picchu mountain, which has limited tickets available. It was a smooth and awesome end to the trip.

    The professionalism and effort the staff took was immense and resulted in a fantastic volunteer experience that I will carry with me the rest of my life. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in taking advantage of it.

    Aponderamiento de las ninas

    It's has been 2 months that I've been in cusco, Peru. I was there for 3 weeks, in the Arcopaa family, with girls from 6 to 12 years old in "aponderamineti de las Nina's", a place 1h ago from cusco where they can go after school for suport, attention and education.

    It was absolutely te best time of my life. I miss it like crazy! It's amazin how giving a bit of us can give us back soooo much! All the girls that I've met they're still so special to me... Thank tou maximo nivel for all the support and accommodation! I had so much fun and I met so many amazing people in my house.. Besides cusco!! I truly recommend this city.. Try the "green point" ;)

    I think there's no words to describe what it is to be 3 weeks (too little time!) to be volunteering.. Especially with my girls. Definitely have to try it. There's so many people on the world that need just a little bit of our time... It can just be a hug or teach them how to make a cake... So simple. And I don't know how you'll get so much more in return.

    Thank you for everything maximo nivel!

    My girls!!!
