Almost 15 years later, she's still at it and loves sharing the knowledge she's gained over the years and grateful for all the wonderful friends she's made. People keep coming back over and over and over again! That's Liza top right leaning against the post, instructor Karen Searle (who's been leading our tours since the beginning) in blue by post bottom row, with one of our weaving tours.
All of our instructors are well-established and successful in their fields. Classes are small and run for eight days. We prefer that each student have plenty of individual attention and a unique and rewarding experience in Guatemala. Join us for an unforgettable experience!
