Exploring La Suiza and Ija'tz part 2

Exploring La Suiza and Ija'tz part 2

After a quick yet full trip to La Suiza, the DLG team and Chet Sadler from the Sanibel Captiva Rotary traveled to the Ija’tz Cooperative in San Lucas Toliman. Carol, DLG’s Tour Manager and I (Director of Development), traveled early that morning to make it to Ija’tz around lunch time. We spent the afternoon picking Arnulfo’s brain about tourism in San Lucas Toliman. Considering San Lucas is on the shores of Lake Atitlan and is such a beautiful community rich in history and tradition, we wanted to learn more about how we can support the cooperative through Community Tourism.

My favorite part of De la Gente are the tours, workshops , interacting with other people, sharing ideas and discovering new forms of life, seeing how appreciative the farmers are for DLG, and being involved in staff meetings when everyone is informed of each other’s work.

Mi parte favorita en DLG es más sobre los tours, talleres ,interactuar con otras personas, compartiendo ideas, descubriendo formas de vida, ver lo agradecido que están los campesinos con DLG y la reunión de equipo, estar siempre en sintonía.
