Tipping Info

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.


One of the best ways to see a city is to experience it like a local, and that’s just what we have in store for you. This Panajachel tour will give you a great feeling for what it’s like to live in Panajachel, from its history and customs to its present day life.
Explore the Santa Cruz Brotherhood church to get a solid grasp on Panajachel’s history and background before heading over to the home of a local Mayan family. There, you’ll be introduced to customary ways of preparing meals with an hour-long cooking class from the family themselves. They’ll make you feel warm and welcome in their home, where you’ll enjoy a delicious local dinner before heading out into the town for a beer at a local bar. You’ll have a chance to mingle with locals and experience life the way they do.
