What People Are Saying About The Trip

  • SofiaStephanie Rodriguez

    My experience with Vivid Roots was phenomenal! I loved every single moment of my experience in Guatemala. I felt safe from the get-go (my first solo vacation. I was super nervous.) Everyone from the team was friendly. I love how conscious the company is and gives back. I definitely recommend going on a trip! ??????

  • Hans Hansen

    Amazing guides, beautiful country, and most importantly, the profound impact this group is having on communities in Guatemala. Being a part of that will be something I remember for the rest of my life. Highly recommend getting involved with these guys.
