Village Life in Guatemala

Village Life in Guatemala
One of my favourite aspects of travelling is meeting the people who live in the country. That's why a highlight of our recent trip to Guatemala was visiting a small community, to see their school and have lunch in a farmhouse. Before leaving the city of Antigua, where we'd stayed for two days, we asked our guide, Fidensio, if we could buy a couple of soccer balls to take as a gift to the school. He arranged for us to stop at a stall in a local market on our way out of town, where a local businessman was selling soccer balls and other goods. After making our purchase, we drove about an hour out of Antigua along winding roads, finally pulling onto a dusty lane. We watched as farmers planted and fertilized their fields by hand. Horses are expensive, and the farms are small enough that the work can...

A good guide can make the difference

A good guide can make the difference
One of the joys of travelling is seeing things that are unique, unlike anything we’ve witnessed before. And it’s even better when we’re not just watching it, but immersed in a new and wonderful experience. Sometimes those things happen spontaneously. But often they’re the result of hiring an intelligent, well-informed guide. A good guide can make the difference between taking the typical tourist path, and really getting to the core of a country. That’s what happened when we visited Guatemala with Wildland Adventures this spring. Upon arriving in the country, we met our guide, Fidensio, and Rudy, our driver. Rudy was courteous, punctual, and had a great sense of humour. And Fidensio was knowledgeable and keen to share that knowledge with us.  Our first stop was in the colonial city of Antigua. During Lent, Antigua is known for its weekly parades from the outskirts of town into its Central Park,...

Champagne Kisses on Temple Tops

Champagne Kisses on Temple Tops
During a recent call with a Wildland Alumni traveler we got to chatting about their past trip that I helped them plan to Belize and Guatemala . She recalled that “… and you made our 25th anniversary so special. When our guide surprised us with a bottle of sparkling wine while watching the sunset from temple top at Yaxha, it was truly incredible.” I replied “Of course, I got you covered.” Maybe that’s a bit braggadocios, but that’s just how we roll at Wildland Adventures. It’s the little things in unexpected places that can turn an already special time together into classic moment that you’ll cherish forever. Planning a romantic vacation takes a finer level of understanding about the destination you are visiting. I find that it BEST to personally try my tricks out, because you have to be absolutely sure it’s going to work. My lucky experimentee is my...
