Volunteer and Explore

The pacing on this trip was great. The group volunteered in the morning and went on outings, listened to speakers, or spent time together in the afternoon and evening. Program participants lived in a private home in an urban area, Quetzaltenango, and there was a short drive to the service site where we painted a classroom at a public school in a more rural area. Program participants were all different ages. Everyone was friendly and cooperative. The guide, Tara, was fantastic. There were hotel stays on both ends of the trip. I especially enjoyed getting to see the city of Antigua. I did have a problem during my travels. Due to weather conditions, I missed a connecting flight from Panama to Guatemala and arrived a day late. I used the Discover Corps emergency number, quickly received a call back, and I was met at the airport by another helpful guide, Orlando. I would definitely travel with Discover Corps again.
