Conservation is at the heart of everything we do. Our expeditions and nature tours contribute directly to wildlife conservation projects.
‘The only way for life to be sustained is by reconnecting with nature‘ – Sandra Ingerman
Be still.. and listen. On our expeditions and nature tours, being quiet and respectful in nature offers the opportunity for wildlife to come to us and for nature to reveal its secrets. In the stillness the forest comes alive and each rustle of a leaf, each movement in the trees, is a wildlife moment waiting to happen.
‘Nature itself offers a powerful doorway into the invisible realms‘ – Sandra Ingerman
Connect with nature
Land of the Maya, Guatemala is a small and beautifully diverse country in Central America. Over half of the inhabitants are of direct Mayan ancestry, the majority of which live in the highland regions of the country.
This rich culture is a reflection of Guatemala’s diverse landscapes and habitats, that range from volcanic mountain ranges to lowland rainforest, and coastal mangrove swamps to deserts. These diverse habitats are home to an amazing 1246 species of animals and 8682 species of plants.
One of Guatemala’s biggest exports is the famous coffee that is grown throughout the mountainous regions of the country. Another export, cacao often made into chocolate, was considered a sacred plant and was so important to the Mayans that at certain points in their history the beans were considered currency. References to hot chocolate date back to around 900AD from Mayan inscriptions.
Guatemala is not as well travelled as many of its Central American neighbours, such as Belize and Costa Rica. Being off the beaten track, it is ripe for exploration and discovery by the intrepid traveller.
