Please Note the Following:

 
1) We have a team manual and document packet for those interested.
 
2) If there is a mask mandate still in effect in Guatemala or by the airlines at the time of our travel, all members must comply.  (Nothing is currently mandated.)
 
3) Every travel team member will be welcomed, respected and valued so that your trip will be memorable and rewarding.  While the primary purpose is to benefit the people of Guatemala, we’ve built in some activities for relaxation and fun.  Also, be prepared for some of your most enjoyable experiences coming from serendipitous encounters with the families, children, artisans and community leaders we meet.
 
4) If you have professional skills or talents that we can use on our trip, we will make every attempt — you will make us a better team!
 
5) If there is an activity that you would prefer not to experience, for any reason, you can stay back at the hotel. No pressure!
 
6) There is no requirement that you do additional fundraising for the nonprofit, or to collect donations to transport in your suitcase, but if you are able and willing, we can share recommendations. The more people you “serve” in Guatemala, the better your overall enjoyment and feeling of satisfaction. This trip will change your life forever!
 
7) The youngest member on one of our travel teams was seven years old at the time. Children are welcomed to participate. You know best whether they would enjoy both the tourism and service aspects.
 
8) We prefer team sizes below 15 people to keep our trips more quaint, manageable, and for better logistics.
