Antigua Guatemala

February 03


April 27, 2020

Come join us in Antigua, Guatemala!

This will be a mini version of our full scale Stone Soup Family Pop Up. We will meet once a week, each Monday, throughout February 3rd until April 27th.  We will meet and share events, experiences, and more throughout our time together. The core of Stone Soup Family Pop Up Communities is our community skills share concept.  In order for us to effectively create this experience, one member of each family will be required to host a workshop, activity, or another offering, at least once throughout the pop up.  Unlike our full scale pop up, you can join any or all weeks throughout the two months.  This is more of an informal gathering, a bit of a “pop in”.  Click the button for a detailed description for how this works.

About Antigua Guatemala

Antigua is a city in the central highlands of Guatemala known for its preserved Spanish Baroque-influenced architecture as well as a number of ruins of colonial churches. It served as the capital of the Kingdom of Guatemala. It has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Worldschooling in Antigua

While in Antigua, your family can experience the following:

  • Learn about Mayan history and culture
  • Explore Mayan ruins
  • Hike a volcano
  • Immerse yourself in a Spanish and Mayan speaking culture
  • Take part in Semana Santa
  • Experience local arts and markets
  • And more!

Remote Working Support

If your family is looking to bring your remote work with you to Antigua, you’ll find some of the following supports:

  • Local co-working space
  • Strong wireless + local cell service carriers

Meet Your Hosts: The Norries

Doug + Sabrina Norrie and their two daughters, nine and two years old, are excited to host the Stone Soup Antigua 2020 Pop-Up. The Norries have taken part in the Stone Soup Pop-Ups from the very beginning, including the mini pop-up in Guatemala, and deeply connect with the concept of worldschooling in community. As unschoolers + full time digital nomads they look forward to cultivating another beautiful community of co-learning, co-working and co-exploring.

The Cost to Attend is $100 USD

Note: The cost to attend this pop is much lower for a few reasons. Firstly, we will only meet once a week, and unlike our larger Pop Up communities there isn’t a requirement to attend the entire month. You can come any Monday that is convenient for you to attend. This gives people the opportunity to stay almost anywhere in Antigua, and still be able to make it to the group location on Mondays.
