The SERES embassy is temporarily closed. You may visit our offices in San Juan del Obispo and stay tuned for the launch of our Regional Resilience Hub in 2018.
The SERES embassy is a sustainable co-living and learning space located just outside of Antigua, Guatemala in the town of San Juan del Obispo. The Embassy serves as headquarters for the SERES team, and also provides a base for running our environmental learning and leadership programs.
The SERES Embassy is also part of the international Embassy Network of coliving spaces, providing a place for those who seek to immerse themselves with innovative peers and a dynamic environment with events, discussions and projects, rather than staying in impersonal hotels or spare rooms.
Whatever your reason for visiting Guatemala, it offers the opportunity for collaborators and social entrepreneurs to form a part of our community and work, dream, learn, collaborate and play together.
What Guests Should Know
The SERES Embassy is a kind of living social laboratory, designed to foster dialogue, creativity and learning. It is a safe space, where we value genuine curiosity, inquiry and dialogue.
We invite you to stay with us at the Embassy so that you may have a home and community away from home. The SERES Embassy offers short and long-term accommodations for those entrepreneurs, creative, professionals, academics and modern nomads who feel drawn to Guatemala – her people, her story, her culture – and are visiting for work, projects, collaborations and learning.
We firmly believe that the communities and individuals that we work with in Guatemala do not need someone to come down and paint a school for them. What they need more than anything else is to be seen and heard as the talented, passionate and wonderful young leaders that they are. This belief is reflected in all that SERES does, including throughout the SERES Embassy.
The pricing for our Embassy guests is based on a buy-one-give-one model. This model allows us to offer opportunities for local leaders and change-makers to also spend time at the Embassy, meeting people just like you.
It is our hope that this type of meaningful, honest, face-to-face interaction will foster the type of collaborative community and innovative projects that we know will truly create a positive, sustainable impact.
