We are very happy that we were referred to Lee at Los Elementos Adventure Center by our AirBnb host. From the very beginning (even when our trip had to be postponed for a year due to the pandemic), Lee was very responsive, kind and helpful. We ended up spending a day trip going from Panajachel to the Solola market. We also took a short hike and had a picnic in the forest. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and are really thankful that we got to experience the culture and beauty of this area on Market day. What really made this excursion extra memorable and fun was the fantastic guide that we had, a young man by the name of Marce! He was the perfect guide for our family, so adventurous, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to provide a unique day for us. It is such a treat when guides are flexible and open to whatever adventures may present themselves. We would definitely go with Los Elementos again and highly recommend Lee's personalized services and wonderful guides!

Lee’s place was a treat. Transportation from antigua to santa cruz was taken care, as with the ride back. The kayaking was calm and quiet. The hike is not too easy so be ready, slightly challenging, you can skip it tho. You can stay at the airbnb at lees as well if you want.

When you’re trusting your entire trip to a person you’ve never met, Lee is the kind of guy that you hope you’re getting. He is professional, knowledgeable and flexible to changes in your schedule. I didn’t have to worry about driving, planning or schedules. I just enjoyed myself and saw much more of Guatemala than I would have on my own

Lee and Kayak Guatemala created an amazing day for my group. He is incredibly easy to communicate with through What’s App and gets back to you often within minutes. He also tailors the entire excursion around your needs. We had to change the start time 3 times and it wasn’t an issue at all. In addition, you can pick and choose what adventure activities you want to do or not to do. But what makes this company so personal is that Lee actually took us to his own home and made breakfast for us as well, which is right on the edge of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. We loved Guatemala but this was probably our most memorable experience on the whole trip. Definitely book Lee and Kayak Guatemala for your next excursion.

We stayed in one of the houses they offered and I can’t say enough great things about the owners or the location. To start, the location is perfectly located in Santa Cruz; you have access to beautiful views, hikes, lake activities and relaxation. Both Lee and Elaine were extremely helpful and accommodating. When I return to the lake I will absolutely stay here again.
