Do you want a one-of-a-kind, true Guatemalan experience while supporting local communities, interacting with local Guatemalans and getting off the beaten path? Meet farmers and artisans and work alongside them in their homes, as you create your own souvenir and memories to last a lifetime. No experience necessary - just a sense of adventure. De la Gente is a non-profit that offers community tourism as a way to create a real cultural experience by encouraging interaction between visitors and local Guatemalans, as well as to supplement income for the farmers and artisans.

Thank you to the Gonzalez family for opening up your home and giving the tour an authentic experience. We started at the family farm, and finished with a great cup of coffee in their home. I would highly recommend this small local friendly tour!

Hi there! You can reserve a tour by phone, email, or through our website. If you don't have a working Guatemalan phone, you can usually ask your hotel or hostel to use theirs, or go to one of the small shops (tiendas) that... More
