Tipping Info

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers 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.


Experience life in Panajachel like a local. Head out in a private van to the Solola Market, a local Panajachel market where you can see how locals go about their daily market shop. While in Solola, we’ll also visit The Mayan Association, a female-only membership association that reinforces the significant role women play in Mayan communities.
From there, we’ll hop on local transportation to San Jorge, where a local Mayan family will host you in their home for lunch and a cooking lesson, where you’ll learn authentic local culinary traditions. After you savour the delicious lunch you’ve just cooked, you’ll head out on a cultural tour of the San Jorge village, to see first-hand what life is like here.
At this point, your Panajachel tour will end with a trip back to town, and you will return with a heightened sense of local life here, and an unforgettable experience.
