We welcome teams with caring hearts by offering short-term trip opportunities to El Tejar, Guatemala, in the Central Highlands. Trip leaders can simply get a group of 5-25 people together and coordinate the group's airfare to Guatemala City. We take care of the rest! We coordinate lodging, local transportation, meals and service programs to make each trip a wonderful experience!
Experience the beauty of the Guatemalan highlands by staying at our peaceful DelCafe Mountain Lodge, a private bed & breakfast nestled in our family-owned coffee and agroforestry farm or in one of our new dorms at the base of the mountain.
Your group can participate in our service & educational programs for Mayan kids and families neighboring our farm. We organize activities like food and clothing distribution, kids fairs, soccer games, light construction programs, VBS both at the farm and in the nearby village of El Durazno.
While at the farm, you will be delighted with the farm-to-table meals we serve. You will enjoy nature, relax and have access to lots of fun activities (coffee tour, organic gardening, paddleboats, hiking trails, fishing, ropes course, hill sleds, and more).
We take you on day trips to wonderful destinations that may include the Iximche Mayan Ruins, the Spanish colonial city of Antigua, or Lake Atitlan (two of UNESCO World Heritage Sites). You may also climb a volcano, visit artisan shops, museums and more!
We are happy to offer Mission trips, Adventure trips, Special Interest trips (like gardening, wellness, or culinary trips) or family / friends vacation trips
Through our DelCafe programs, travelers get to enjoy our beautiful country while making a difference by spending some time volunteering in a variety of fun educational activities programs benefitting Mayan kids, farmers, women groups and families. Each agenda is unique!
