Exploring Guatemala Maya children in the Guatemala Highlands Exploring Guatemala
Scholars tell us that the Ancient Maya disappeared mysteriously a thousand years ago, but anyone who has intimately explored the fascinating region of Guatemala knows that the Maya continue to thrive in the highlands.

Travel to remote Totonicapan where you will find a community of over twenty K`iche families. These families reach out to visitors with the vision of bringing people into their homes to share their culture with the outside world.

In return, your host family is eager to learn about your life back home. Share a memorable communal evening learning the lifestyle and culture of this hospitable family. Settle in and experience living history as you overnight with your family.

Make the most of this rare experience to immerse yourself in rich Guatemalan culture. This will truly be an unforgettable experience - more than just another night's stay on your trip to Guatemala.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
