Full description
Your experience will begin with pickup at 8:00 AM from your centrally-located hotel in Guatemala City. From there you will begin your 2-hour land transfer towards Antigua Guatemala, with the option of a hotel pickup from within Antigua Guatemala.

Once having arrived to Antigua, you will start visiting some of the different farms. The first stop is a macadamia nut farm, where you will learn about production, the farm, and volunteering options. This farm is focused on helping communities to be economically independent through macadamia production and the sale of their products, both nationally and internationally. At the conclusion of your farm tour, you will receive a face massage with macadamia oils and creams, and can also enjoy some delicious macadamia pancakes.

Later, you will move to another farm for an agricultural tour and exotic plant tour. Whilst at this site, you will also get to know what this farm gives back to the community. You will then have lunch at the farm's restaurant, which uses locally-produced and fresh vegetables. In the afternoon, you will visit one final farm to learn about Mayan farming techniques, before your transfer back to your hotel in Guatemala City or Antigua Guatemala at approximately 4:00 PM.
