Participate - yes, participate! - in a tour or workshop with De la Gente. Meet farmers and artisans and work alongside them in their homes, as you create your own souvenir, not to mention memories to last a lifetime. No experience necessary - just a sense of adventure.

De la Gente offers community tourism as a way to create a real cultural experience by encouraging interaction between visitors and local Guatemalans, as well as way to supplement income for the farmers and artisans. Our goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of the people who visit us while having an impact on the lives of the people and communities with whom we work on a daily basis.

I highly recommend the De la Gente artisan and coffee tours while visiting Antigua if you want to meet the locals and get an idea of how the local coffee co-op farmer lives and operates and how an artisan makes a living in Guatemala.
