The question is: why are we doing this? As with most likeminded travelers, we are all enthusiastic volunteers, couchsurfers, woofers and old-school backpackers. Some of us have been living here in Guatemala for over 3 years, working at volunteer projects. With the influx of rich backpacker-like kids, most volunteer options have become expensive. That is, you have to pay to be able to work. This is donation, a very respectful action, but that will not help those who believe in work-exchange volunteering. So we came up with an idea: why not volunteer as a tour guide totally privately? As long as our travel expenses are met, why not continue traveling, while helping others to high-quality travel experiences?
Our first such project is El Mirador in Peten, Guatemala. This will be loud...
