When we arrived in Guatemala, we were pleased to discover that the tour company Adventure Life uses, Viaventure, has the same philosophy as Adventure Life. Viaventure contributes to the local economy and development of individuals by using only local guides and services. They show respect for local communities, sites, wildlife and encourage recycling and low-impact visiting. They also contribute part of their profits to five grassroots projects and educate tourists about these projects so we too can contribute.
Our guide for Antigua was excellent. He is a “mixto” and very proud of his Mayan background and an expert on the Mayan culture and history.
