Group Trips in Guatemala

Spanish Marks creates custom-made itineraries for groups, covering both cultural and volunteering activities in Guatemala. Each itinerary is tailored to your group's requirements and budget, and includes guides.

Our trips are designed to fully immerse groups into local communities, allowing them to make a valuable contribution, work as a team and experience a new culture.

Types of Projects

Whether you are a school group, skilled professionals or corporate volunteers, we will tailor trips to meet your group's individual requirements. Projects include both: 


Volunteer overseasWork alongside fully-vetted charities, NGOs and social enterprises dedicated to the development of Guatemala. Options range from reforestation projects, promotion of youth rights, nutrition and medical attention, teaching and much more.

Cultural Activites

Group travel abroadA fascinating range of cultural activites can be built into your itinerary which compliment your educational and recreational objectives. Activities range from volcano treks, to coffee tasting and dance workshops.

Ethical volunteering

Spanish Marks partners with ethical volunteering organisations who are passionate about making a positive impact in Guatemala.

It is important to us that the benefits for our volunteers and partner organisations are balanced, and that while volunteers develop invaluable skills on a project, the host organisation is also able to benefit through a collaboration of visions and experiences.
