Review for Mission Guatemala Inc, New Albany, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A group of 11 youth, young adults, and adults from Castle Rock Colorado came for a week. We stayed in the beautiful compound near Panajachel Guatemala, where our lodging was fantastic, our food exceptional, and our hosts tremendously experienced and available.
The group toured the medical clinic, classrooms, sewing school, computer lab, and pharmacy. Detailed attention of the very well organized program was offered in an interesting and helpful way.
Our group worked on a construction project throughout the week, laying block and pouring foundation for a teacher's meeting space in the area. We were instructed, supervised, and encouraged in our tasks by professionals who clearly knew what they were doing and who were fun to work with. We also met members of the local education board who were genuinely thankful for our work and presence.
Opportunities to explore the nearby town and region were offered as a part of the experience including expert presentations by Mayan cultural, spiritual, craft, and technical leaders. This proved to be a very rich introduction to a beautiful country and wonderful people.
We could easily work with Mission Guatemala again and recommend this group with our highest endorsement.
