Family-stays are with approved host families who have been working with Maximo Nivel for years. Family-stays include a shared room with a shared bath. Private rooms and bathrooms are also available as an upgrade to your program. In shared rooms, you are grouped with people of the same gender and approximate age. Host families offer comfortable beds, hot showers, and WiFi, although internet service can be slow. Guests are free to come and go as they please, but you should always respect the basic rules of living with a host-family.

Family-stays include breakfast and dinner 7 days/week. Our families are very accustomed to hosting international guests and are happy to cook vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free meals. When registering, please let us know about any dietary restrictions.
