The Boca Costa Medical Mission is located in Southwest Guatemala,(see map). Medical clinics, both regularly scheduled and team based, are staffed by local nurses, health promoters ,and medical volunteers. Established in 2003, the base clinic is in the village of Paquila, above Mazatenango, is about 1½ hours south of Quetzaltenango and about 2 ½ hours west of Guatemala City.

The clinic in Paquila is open every Thursday and Friday. The second clinic in Xojola has been open two days each month since 2009. Other clinic locations are open when the BCMM hosts medical teams. The clinics draw from some 45 small villages. The population is indigenous Maya whose primary language is K'iché although Spanish is also spoken.

The area, Boca Costa de Solola, is one of the poorest areas of Guatemala. It has one of the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in Guatemala. The climate is warm, with coffee and banana trees, sugar cane, corn and rubber trees. It is one of the neediest and the most beautiful places you haven't yet fallen in love with.

If you have a willingness to lose your heart and enjoy a wonderful medical experience then please contact Jim/Dianne Thompson, Boca Costa Medical Mission, at jodmthompson@hotmail.com for more information.
