About this trip

This trip, hosted in collaboration with Nate of Nate Meets World, is designed for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts who are looking for a truly off the beaten path experience. During your time in Guatemala, you will have hike various volcanoes and even do a three-day trek from Quetzaltenango to Lake Atitlán! 


While this tour centers on hiking an outdoor activities we've made sure to fuse in some cultural immersion and educational activities along with some time to grab a beer at one of Antigua's premium breweries or relax in natural hot springs. 


This trip is for people who are physically ready for multiple days of hiking, including, numerous volcanoes with steep inclines set at high altitudes. At times our lodging and meals situation will be on the more basic side as we will be in more remote and rural parts of Guatemala. In addition to hiking, this trip is also designed to give you a deeper understanding of Guatemalan history and culture and to support small local businesses!

Heart of Travel and our co-host, Nate, look forward to seeing you all soon!

The Heart of Travel was born out of a deep-rooted love and passion for travel, art, history, food, nature, culture and adventure as well as a call to give back to the communities and people that had already provided us with so much. The travel industry has long been bombarded with double decker tour busses, beach front resorts and cruise ships, often at the expense of the local communities. As a response to this failing system, we began a boutique travel company that allows clients to explore new places in an authentic and non-touristy way, offering travelers a more intimate and unique experience all while removing the stress and hassle of researching, planning, bargain hunting, reserving and more that goes along with planning a trip or vacation.

Prompt service. Excellent driver and comfortable ride. Heart of Travel made my arrival from Guatemala City to Antigua very enjoyable. I would highly recommend their services.
This was my second trip with Heart of Travel and it was perfect in every way. The Parque Hotel was beautiful and in a wonderful location. Dylan and Daniel were the best guides and Allie—an added bonus— The Heart of Travel’s photographer. Daniel, the local guide, is so knowledgeable that you will learn so much from him. Dylan also. The Restaurant’s Chelsea picked were all different and wonderful. Lisa, our food tour guide, gave us the best experience at The Market we went to. I loved Mexico City and I look forward to my next journey with Heart of Travel—where ever that may be. Thank you Everyone who made this trip so perfect and memorable. CRP
Even though I speak Fair Spanish, I was a little intimidated to tour Mexico City on my own, given the size and complexity of getting around. Our tour guide showed us the best of Mexico City, with no hassles.

Fun, Fun, Fun! We traveled with The Heart of Travel, our favorite for Spanish-speaking destinations. We had a perfect mix of history, culture, learning, sharing, and food and drink. Día de los Muertos at the cemetery was very special. Our accommodation at an AirB&B was perfect for our group. Our local guide, Gabo, and Heart of Travel guide, Ana, are the best.

This was the best trip to Mexico we have ever been on. If you didn't go to Puerto Escondido as an add on, you missed a very relaxing 4 night side trip, to a very friendly small town.
