“All of my travel arrangements with Los Elementos were easy and effortless. The accommodation I stayed in at two of the properties in Santa Cruz was excellent. Their guide Humberto who took me on a sunrise hike and a shamanic blessing was not only knowledgeable but had a great personality.”

“Great tour with beautiful views! Marcelino was an awesome tour guide and very encouraging as we attempted to make it up the steep hills! The bikes were very nice and we had no issues with the ride. The tour of San Juan was great and enjoyed stopping at some of the best co-op’s. I highly recommend this tour!”

“Ask for Alex. He’s the best guide we’ve had in both Belize and Guatemala, and we have done many excursions. We had a great time kayaking around Lake Atitlan. We learned a lot about local Mayan people and the country. This company and Alex are a must if you are in the area. We came from Antigua.”
