Explore, Learn, and Make a Difference!
9 days and 10 nights


Guatemala is a country of wonder- a feast for the eyes and a poem for the soul. Spectacular volcanic mountains take your breath away. Lake Atitlan mornings, where fishermen slowly paddle their hand-carved boats through the mist shrouded water, are sweetly serene. The Colonial grace of Antigua charms with its pastel, sun-faded buildings and colorful street life. Guatemala's rich indigenous culture will inspire you with its proud heritage. Most of all, its friendly people will settle into your heart and give you reason to smile long after you return home. I'd love to share with you.

This Corazon Journey gives participants an opportunity to visit the beautiful country of Guatemala, meet the weavers who make the Corazon scarves, and participate in a service project at the Corazon Learning Center. It is a pleasant balance of exploration, learning, and service. We will stay in comfortable facilities and enjoy numerous cultural outings.We will learn about the history of Guatemala, including its civil war and indigenous rights campaign. Spending time with women weavers of Corazon Scarves and Boutique, we will hear their stories and discover their vibrant textile tradition.
