Vacation information

Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.
Diet:
We cater for both vegetarians and vegans.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

To greatly reduce our impact on the environment there will be a maximum of ten team members. This helps to minimise the damage associated with large scale tourism. You will be issued with instructions as to how you can help to reduce your impact on the environment through simple measures such as unwrapping new products before leaving home as Guatemala does not have the same level of recycling in place. We hope that you will follow our advice to help make a difference.

People

We are committed to maximising the benefits of our trips to the local community and minimising the negative impact associated with tourism. We employ local agents and staff, which means that not only will we have the best and most knowledgeable people for the job, but we are also supporting the local economy. Additionally we can gain a real insight into Guatemalan culture by spending time with these guides. We treat every person associated with this trip with equal respect and expect clients to do the same.

Our local agent is based in Guatemala City and are one of Condé Nast Traveler’s top 20 eco-tourism agencies in the world. During our time in Guatemala we stay in locally run hotels and an ecolodge at the Candelaria Caves. Our ecolodge is run by the community of Mucbilhá who oversee the conservation of the jungle on top of and surrounding the caves. Our payment to the lodge directly helps to preserve this wonderful area and staying here is an exciting and rewarding experience.
