About this trip

Join us on our Guatemala's Multi-Regional coffee tour.  We have come up with an itinerary packed full of experiences that will help you understand a wide range of aspects that you need to know as a coffee lover!


We will visit coffee cooperatives and small producers who will share with us in detail all of the processes involved in the various stages of coffee production.  Our two main destinations are the colonial town of La Antigua Guatemala, a picturesque little town complete with cobblestone roads nestled in a valley surrounded by volcanoes; and Lake Atitlán, a beautiful volcanic lake in the Western highlands, ringed by small villages where you can feel the strong presence of the Maya culture, customs and traditions. 


The fun doesn't stop there, during our time in Antigua we will also hike one of the 3 active volcanoes in Guatemala, the Pacaya volcano. Here we'll enjoy a picnic at the summit while appreciating the lava and roasting some marshmallows!


Finally, our trip will conclude with a  stop at our favorite stands and tiny comedores in the towns surrounding Antigua for the best local street food!

For those interested in joining our Multi-Regional coffee tour in Guatemala, we will be hosting two Discovery Calls via Zoom.  These calls consist of a brief presentation as we walk through the itinerary together before opening up the session to questions and general conversation.

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 11-day/10-night trip to Guatemala and highly recommend Heart of Travel. The itinerary Chelsea planned for me was perfect. The pricing was very reasonable. Her communication and support before and during the trip was exceptional. She went above and beyond in helping me solve a couple of SNAFU’s of my own making. I look forward to traveling again with this company in the hopefully not too distant future. I consider myself a well-traveled (104 countries), fairly adventurous, 61-year-old. My previous trips have ranged from completely self-planned to high-end travel companies, solo to small group. I seek unique, authentic experiences. Probably more so than most travelers my age, I enjoy being active and even physically challenged. However, like most travelers my age, I have become old and spoiled and place great value in a good night’s sleep in a comfortable bed in a safe environment.

This trip exceeded my already high expectations. The itinerary was planned and crafted with such care to allow for an immersive experience. Chelsea and the Heart of Travel allow you to experience Guatemala like a local while touching on the experiences all tourists want to have. Chelsea welcomed us to Guatemala with open arms and we left with full hearts. An 11/10 experience; highly recommend.

We had an amazing trip with Heart of Travel! We were able to experience things we would have never been able to do without their help. Our hike up Volcan Acatenango was an exertion we will never forget. Heart of Travel took care of the details for us, making the trip smooth and simple on us. I highly recommend booking an experience with them.
