Quetzaltrekker Guides and office staff are all working as volunteers. We have a minimum of three months commitment to the project, most people stay with us for far longer and often return to their homelands and continue to fund raise for us. Where possible, we employ local Guatemalan labor to complete our team. Each hike is guided by a qualified tour leader, a second guide and often a local guide to compliment our services. This provides added factors of safety and expertise with respect to our routes (in the case of Todos Santos for example). In addition it brings welcome income to local economies and is a source of sustainable non-destructive income in remote communities (one of the best forms of ecotourism presently known).
