Discover Guatemala with Maria

[activecampaign form=127 css=0]

Meet Maria.

Maria lives with her mother, father, grandmother and two brothers in a simple house in the community of San Pablo.  While she lives a rather typical life for a young girl in her community, her family is proud to open their home to guests and share their culture, food and way of life.

  • Learn to cook tamales with her grandmother using the family’s secret recipe
  • Blow bubbles with the kids while they teach you new phrases in Spanish
  • Pick some fresh coffee beans off of the plants growing behind her house.

And that’s just one afternoon!

“I loved it.  Everything about this trip surpassed my expectations.  I expected a high quality trip where I saw the important sights and did some volunteering, but I got much more than that.  The ladies at the Home Base became like family, and I left a piece of my heart with the children at the school.  Orlando, the guide, feels more like my Guatemalan brother than a staff member.  I never expected to be so moved by a vacation.  I came back with a new perspective on life and a love for Guatemala.”
