Robert – Columbus, United States

You made my Guatemala experience so great! I absolutely have to come back some day. Like a magnet for Buenas Cosas and Great People. Also, the most comfy hammock Ive ever had the pleasure of being lazy in exists here. Great conversations, and an excellent launch pad for seeing the real Guatemala.
Tim – Vancouver, Canada

Buenas Cosas is a beautiful initiative with beautiful people. Memo, Angelica, Wilson, Reina, P and William are an amazing family and they made me feel part of it. And could not have asked for a better birthday on the road! Eternal thanks, for such a great experience. I look forward to visiting my Guatemalan family in the near future. Besos!

Stephen – Flagstaff, United States

Super positive and educational experience. Keep up the good work guys!
Shona – Boulder, United States

I love this place, Angelica, Memo, the whole family, and, well, everyone I ever said “Buenas!” to in passing during my 3 weeks there. Having just come from NYC, on my first travel experience, what awaited me when I arrived in Peten was not something that I could have anticipated. But I’ll tell you this honestly: I would not have changed a single thing about it, even down to the hot days and cold showers. When you sign up for this experience, do so knowing that it’s not going to be posh like any of the hostels you’ll find 9 minutes away in Flores. But if you want to actually experience what it’s like to live in Guatemala; and you are ready to throw-down for any new experience that comes your way; and you’ll come in to it with an open mind and an open heart — then I can not recommend it highly enough.
