During our visit, you will have the opportunity to get to know the Mayan Kaqchiquel culture in an authentic way and the day-to-day life of local women who seek to make their routines their job. They will share their passions and concerns with you and we hope that you can too, to learn and enjoy diversity. Our experience is special because we are based on a regenerative tourism model, which can preserve culture and provide new ways of working for the future of women in Santa Cruz, having a 100% impact on the local economy.
