We are running an Internet Cafe here in Xela, using Linux on all the machines. Maybe your university would like to teach some courses outside of the capital? You could use our Centro de Internet.
And there is a local vegetarian restaurant, La Salida. It's called that because it's on La Salida to Almolonga & Zunil. Of course other local restaurants have vegetarian dish, Cardinelli's is a great Italian place, and the Royal Paris is, you guessed it, French.
