Amazing 3-day hike through the Guatemalan countryside to Lake Atitlan. On the way we had multiple stops to enjoy the views, rest and hear about the diverse history of Guatemala. And of course the greatest reward was the amazing sunrise on the last day! During the nights we slept in a community house and in a homestay, both nights were pretty warm so you dont really need an extra warm sleeping bag. Dont take unnecessary stuff and if your time permits, use the bag drop!! The walk can be pretty exhausting and steep, so you will appreciate every gram that you dont have to carry ;-) but its absolutely doable for fit people! Our beautiful guides made this experience so special! Thank you very much to all of you!

The shuttle service from Guatemala City wasn’t a good experience. They kicked me out half way with no explanation into a small car with no seat belts and a guy that was driving way to fast down windy road. Super scary. But used them for hike to Santa Maria volcano and had a great experience!

Wonderful landscape, amazing team, challenging but feasible... A real true connection with the nature AND the cultural history of Guatemala. In addition you are helping kids from the street to go to the school... Just the perfect way to do hiking in Guatemala. Thanks a lot !

This past weekend a group of friends and I signed up for the 2-day Tajumulco hike with Quetzaltrekkers. I highly recommend this organization. Friday evening we met before our trip to go over the weekend itinerary, sort out camping/tent supplies, food, water, and to meet everyone in our group. If you are hesitant about having the right supplies, Quetzaltrekkers will provide all the hiking and camping gear for you (all gear is by donation), at no additional charge. During our hike, I was impressed with all the different things Quetzeltrekkers did to bring us together as a group. We stopped for a group breakfast before the trek, played a name game, had breaks every hour for trail mix and water (though you could also stop as needed), and gathered around for our meals at base camp. In terms of meals, they have it down to a T. Even wrong brings up an extra liter of water for communal cooking. During the trek, we ate tostadas & pasta meals, oatmeal, trail mix, hot chocolate, and cookies. You don't need to worry won't go hungry on this trip. As for the trip, I highly recommend the Tajumulco trek! It's definitely meant for moderate climbers or those who are already acclimated to the altitude. However, few views compare to what you get to see once you're watching the sunrise on the tallest point in Central America. Another favorite part of the trip was when our guide Jamie shared with us the history of Guatemala, the vision of Quetzaltrekkers as an organization, and the purpose behind their non-profit. Overall, it was a top experience for me during my time living in Guatemala. I highly recommend it!

the folks at quetzal trekkers are truly making a difference for the Guatemalans they're working with, and I was happy to support them and their efforts. It's refreshing to see an organization that cares so much about the work they're doing and is making such a positive difference in the local communities. I learned so much during the trek and saw a beautiful side of Guatemala. highly recommend this experience!
