We encourage all participants to bring something from home to donate to the local schools and children.

Visit the markets of Antigua during Friday of Week 1. Famous throughout the region, weaving through the colourful markets of Guatemala is an experience you won’t forget. Learn to navigate the isles and haggle like a local, be hypnotised by the colours, smell and taste of the delicious traditional clothes, jewellery, foods and spices available. Find anything you want among the array of goods available!

Weaving classes with indigious family

Monday of Week 2 will offer weaving classes. Delve into the ancient art of Mayan weaving, taught by those who have had the skill passed down through generations. Guatemalan weaving dates back more than 1,500 years to the Maya culture. Legend has it that the Maya were taught to weave by Ix Chel, the moon goddess and cosmic weaver. Collaborate with craftspeople to produce contemporary items that combine traditional manufacturing techniques with modern aesthetics. It’s a touch of both old and new mingled together!

Kayaking SUP and Yoga by Lake Atitlan

Week 3 offers Kayak and Yoga by Lake Atitlan. Drifting across the water of Lake Atitlan, surrounded by panoramic views of multiple volcanoes brings you a truly unique experience. From your perspective point on your paddle board or kayak, the views of both the renowned Volcanoes and gazing back towards Santa Cruz are unrivalled. Equally, what better place to ‘breathe in, breathe out’, when surrounded by such calm and tranquil scenery.

Tubing in Zephyr Lodge

Sunday of Week 4 has Tubing in Zephyr Lodge as an activity. Zephyr Lodge is a one-of-a-kind oasis hidden away in the hills so you can enjoy your peace and quiet with a beautiful view. Experience stunning views while floating down the beautiful and refreshing waters of the Lanqun River while enjoying chilled beers. For games and lunch, there are two stops. Demonstrate your bridge jumping skills towards the end of the journey for an unforgettable finale to a one-in-a-lifetime experience.

Shemuc Champey

Monday of Week 4, you will visit Shemuc Champey. Hidden in the lush mountainous jungle landscape lies a turquoise paradise of the natural pools, caves, and waterfalls of Shemuc Champey. Tucked up in the densely forested mountains of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, is an incredible limestone paradise that, despite the arduous hours of off-road forging required to reach it, is one of the world’s most magnificent hidden natural beauties.

The Semuc Champey natural monument, which is virtually inaccessible to all but the most hardy four-wheel drive vehicles, features six beautiful tiered turquoise pools, an enormous cave network with underground waterfalls, and breathtaking views. The azure blue waters are perched on a natural limestone bridge that spans a section of the Cahabón River.

Tikal sunrise hike

Early in the morning on Thursday of Week 4, you will participate in a Sunrise Hike. Experience the jungle waking up; new sounds, sights, smells, and colours that you’ll never forget. Listen to the chorus of each unique sound rising up from below you as every animal wakes in turn, creating a raucous like you’ve never heard before. Against the backdrop of the slow rising sun, watch as the ruins of Tikal light up before you. The 02:00 wakeup call is worth it for this unforgettable experience!

Overnight bus from Flores to Antigua

On Friday of Week 4, you will take the overnight bus from Flores to Antigua. Travelling budget doesn’t have to mean discomfort and hunger. Recline and relax in your own space on this overnight trip taking you to your next adventure. With food and water handed to you on the journey, everything is taken care of so you can get from A to B without a worry!

Free Time

During the weekends, there are a lot of opportunities to expore the area and try out different activities such as Acetenango Volcano overnight hike, Pacara volcano hike, India Nose Hike, visiting other villages by taxi boat, and kayaking.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.
