Immersion Trip Prices
Prices for Immersion Trips average out to be $116 a day per person for group sizes of 8 and larger. For this price, we guarantee all the services listed in the section from the time you arrive in San Juan la Laguna until the time you depart from San Juan la Laguna. However, as the group becomes larger and/or stays for an extended period of time (beyond 4 days), we can more easily work around your budget needs.
Coffee Origin Trips, Focus Trips, and Customizing
Apart from Immersion Trips that are based in San Juan la Laguna, we offer Focus Trips and Coffee Origin Trips. Because these trips include more visits and time outside of the Lake Atitlán region, prices are expected to be about 25% more expensive per day, but final pricing depends on the type of accommodations, food, and transportation the group desires. Please Contact Us to start designing a trip that fits within your group's budget.
Specific Requests and Budgets
For groups that have specific requests regarding meals, accommodations, activities, logistics, etc. please Contact Us so that we can begin the conversation regarding your preferred trip dynamic and budget. We also understand that many groups already come with set budgets and we are happy to discuss the possibilities for discounts.
Trip prices ensure that community members receive a fair compensation for the work they put into creating authentic opportunities for visitors. Here is what is included in the standard price:
When in Santiago Atitlán and San Juan la Laguna, we provide lodging with local host families with whom we partner. You will stay in a simple home in a private room or sharing with members from your group. Outside of these locations, we provide modest lodging in hostels, hotels, cabins, dorms, and various tourism projects.
*You can chose to upgrade for accommodations that meet your groups' needs.
We provide three local meals a day, whether it's a meal with one of the the projects with whom we partner, in a local restaurant in town, or with your host family!
Logistics & Accompaniment
We will accompany your group during the entire Immersion Trip, managing the logistics, orientation, payments, translations, group debriefings, etc. along the way.
All of the activities in the itinerary, from classes and presentations to guides and entrance fees, we have factored that all factored in!
