I left Belgium on my own to do a one month travel in and around Guatemala with MonterricoAdventure.
Imagine wanting to go on adventure, but not knowing where to begin. With MonterricoAdventure, you will have the perfect journey. Imagine not having to worry about transportation, tickets, tours, the language, contacts,... but still having the best adventurous time of your life.
One of the best things about this organisation is the spontaneous personality of Gabriel. He was taking so much care of me and has years of experience traveling the world. The personal contact is perfect and even if you are traveling alone, you will never feel like it.
I wanted to combine volunteering and backpacking. This offers you best of both worlds. Thanks to Gabriel, you have a project you can start with, but you can still feel free and bring your own ideas. Working in the school is amazing. The kids and teachers are so thankful for everything you do. And in between the volunteering weeks, you have the chance to go exploring the beautiful El Salvador, lake Atitlan, Acatenango and Antigua. On a short time, you see so much but there’s still time to chill (and party) in the nicest hostels. Gabriel has found the perfect combo of all this.
Also the private spanish lessons from a friendly teacher are recommended.
Prepare for an active, challenging, heartwarming and inspiring journey. Time of my life! Thank you Gabriel and MonterricoAdventures!
