Amigos de Santa Cruz Foundation
The small village of Santa Cruz is surrounded by staggering jagged mountains, accessible only by foot or by boat. Visit the non-profit organisation here that helps support children's lives through education, health care and improving the environment.
In the morning, you will be picked up by your guide and head to Santa Cruz la Laguna, a small native village in one of the most picturesque spots in Guatemala.
Upon arrival, you will be met by a representative from Amigos de Santa Cruz, the charity that help the lives of children and their families in the area. There will be a brief overview of the charity's work as well as a short tuc-tuc ride to the top of the village where you can meet with the kids and hear a small presentation about their lives at the centre.
You will also have the opportunity to visit another centre that focuses on training individuals to gain the skills necessary to produce crafts that are exported or sold locally. Guests can also enjoy a walking tour of the village; due to the town's location, there are magnificent views of Lake Atitlan to be enjoyed.
The tour concludes with a typical Guatemalan meal at a local restaurant.
