Some Spanish Schools in Guatemala
You probably do not need to make arrangements before arrival. If you do, you run the risk of losing your deposit if you change your mind. These schools and lists are shown to give an idea of what is available throughout the country in the form of Spanish language schools. If you are planning to have a lengthy stay, your best bet will be to arrange for one week only, rather than make a non-refundable payment for more and be stuck in some city or school where you decide you do not like. Apparently there is no problem extending classes.
Note that many of these schools just offer classes for beginners. If you need intermediate classes, make sure that the school offers them before paying anything at all.
Here is a list in German that attempts to list the best Spanish Schools in Guatemala
If you already plan to go to classes in Antigua, Huehuetenango, Panajachel, Quetzaltenango (Xela), San Andrés,
Flores or San Pedro la Laguna, I suggest that you take a look at 123teachme.com, which includes ratings and prices for these places. I am mostly keeping this page up because it was already here and in case this ever becomes defunct.
A less extensive site is Guatemala365.com that lists what it terms as a list of the "best Spanish Schools in Guatemala".
Academia Colonial looks and sounds good for its home stay options.
The Ixchél Spanish School gets good reviews.
Tecun Uman does as well.
Dos Mundos is in this pleasant small city, from which one can visit Tikal and
Yaxhá on day trips and other ruins with weekend visits.
Also see San Andrés,
across the lake.
Most are in Zone 10, so they would make for a good location, being in
a safe part of town, but without a lot of English speaking tourists.
ICA Spanish School looks impressive.
Casa Xelaju also teaches the Quiché language.

If there is one you like from a learning experience,
let me know.
This village is very small and, although there is at least one cantina, there is little
or no other nightlife. On the other hand, if you really want immersion, you will get it here.
San Pedro la Laguna (on Lake Atitlan)
Learn Spanish and/or Mam at either. Someone at Stetson University thinks
highly enough of them to include them online.
What kind of village are these schools in and how can you get there?
