The trip with Aprode was really amazing. The organization is runned by a big family who do it with all the love they have. The food, the guide, the care for the people, it was all worth the price. I recommend it by heart!!!

I did a private tour and was so lucky with my (englishspeaking) guide Juan. At first I was a bit concerned because I had heard so much about this hike which is why I wasn't sure if I could do it. Juan made me feel...More

I climbed Acatenango with Aprode a couple of weeks ago (June 2018) and the experience was fantastic. I would recommend anyone who wants to climb it to choose Aprode. They are very knowledgeable, responsible and good-hearted people. They will make sure you have a great...More
