Day 1: Upon arriving in Guatemala City (GUA) – we will be welcomed by our private driver and load into our private bus. We will drive from Guatemala City to the black sand beach where we will have our first group dinner and hopefully witness a spectacular Guatemalan sunset.
Day 2: After a good night’s rest and a delicious breakfast we will head out to the beach to release baby turtles that have hatched overnight, enjoy the beautiful black sand beach and swim in the pools and head out on the pacific ocean in a fun boat ride. We will have time to relax and eat delicious meals together.
Day 3: After a good night’s rest and a lovely breakfast we will have another chance to release baby turtles before we load our belongings in our bus and say goodbye to the beach as we travel to San Andrés. Once we arrive we will host a field day with our families where we get to play with our kiddos, their siblings and their moms.
Day 4: After a lovely breakfast we will spend the day shopping and delivering donations. We will have dinner together and enjoy conversing about the day.
Day 5: After a great breakfast we will head out into the villages to install garden towers. We will spend the day working with our local team to continue creating self sustainability for local families. To commemorate our last night in San Andrés, we will host a Game Night for our community where we all get to be together to deliver additional donations and say our goodbyes.
Day 6: We will load up on the bus to witness the annual All Saints Day Celebration with brightly colored kites flying high in the air. After a few hours of exploring we will continue our drive to Antigua where we will experience a walking tour and a delicious dinner.
Day 7: We will enjoy a morning walk to the city overlook to appreciate the spectacular views of Vulcan de Fuego, Vulcan de Agua and Vulcan de Acatenango. We will spend the day exploring the ruins and shopping in the fabulous markets. We will have time to pack our belongings and enjoy our last group dinner together.
Day 8: We will load up and leave for Guatemala City after breakfast.
Please plan your flights to depart after 1:00 pm.
*Itinerary is subject to change due to current project needs
We often stay in AirB&B’s for group trips so we can have a home base where we meet for breakfast each morning and dinner each evening. There will be room sharing opportunities for those who are interested in spending less on lodging, but we can provide private rooms for everyone upon request.
Usually. If you would like to purchase a single room we can accommodate for an additional fee. We typically share a large house so that we can share our meals but also have many options that would allow everyone on your team to have their own private room.
Depending on what time of year we are going we may be assisting with gardening, painting or even building within the community. We will always play with, read with and laugh with our community and there are projects for people of all skill levels.
Absolutely! We will provide a list of items that are needed and if you would like to pack extra suitcases and bring them with you, we encourage it. We may also have pre-packed suitcases we can get you if you are flying out of Utah.
It is spring like weather where we visit. We encourage you to bring layers as it gets a bit chilly in the early mornings and evenings.
Be prepared to eat delicious locally grown fresh food. We hire local women to prepare our meals and we will eat at local restaurants. There are plenty of meat and non-meat options and we can handle many food restrictions. Just let our team know.
No. We only drink bottled and filtered water while in Guatemala.
