Thank you for your interest in making a trip to Guatemala with us.
For 2023: We hope to go in the summer, between mid-June and early August
Following a successful trip in October of 2022, we are now scheduling a trip to Guatemala this summer, dates to be determined, eight days, mid-week to mid-week, Thursday through the following Thursday. This includes two travel days; the arrival trip has flights followed by a 4-hour van ride. The return trip goes from our base in Quetzaltenango to the lovely colonial town of Antigua, staying overnight there because it is only an hour from the airport.
Travelers must be vaccinated (and preferably, boosted). Masks are no longer required but may be recommended.
Accommodation is in a pleasant hotel in Quetzaltenango, the second largest city in Guatemala. There are restaurant breakfasts and dinners in the city with lunch in the village, hosted by local families.
We go up the mountain daily to the village of Nimasac, the site of our work. There are a LOT of meetings about every aspect of the work currently in progress. Sometimes we have meetings in Quetzaltenango with other partners, including NGOs (non-governmental organizations working in Guatemala), or staff. Trip participants are encouraged to interact with the people in the school, church, and village. Some travelers enjoy working with the children.
We always have 1-2 translators traveling with us.
Please contact us via the contact form if you want to be updated. We'd love to have you join us! Trip costs are approximately $1,800 (depending upon current airfare), all inclusive, for eight days. This includes airfare, transportation, meals and hotels.
