The 3 day trek from Xela to Lago Atitlan was a beautiful walk & amazing experience, and Quetzal Trekkers made it even better - great company ethos, really well organized, good food - everything was absolutely spot on, thank you.

It was not only a great trip (great planning, predation, sauna, ...), Quetzaltrekkers is also based on working completely voluntary and all the money goes into projects like Escuela de Calle or setting up a nurse infrastructure for villages in the mountains.
