Group Volunteering in Guatemala

Spanish Marks creates custom-made itineraries for groups, covering both cultural and volunteering activities in Guatemala. Itineraries are tailored to your group's needs and budget. English-speaking guides are included.

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

Types of group trips 

We provide itineraries for all types of groups, from skilled professionals to school groups or corporate volunteers. We tailor trips to meet your group's requirements, size and age range. All itineraries include: 

Volunteering

Work 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 Activities

A 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.

Immerse yourself in local communities

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. While our volunteers develop invaluable skills on a project, the host organisation should also benefit through a collaboration of visions and experiences.
