About Do Guatemala

Do Guatemala is a Guatemalan-Dutch owned DMC founded in 2012 and located in the beautiful city of Quetzaltenango. Our main goal is to create unforgettable experiences in any possible way for any possible visitor in Guatemala.

Guatemala is known for its charming colorfulness and we represent that in our variety of products such as:
• Being the ideal partner on the ground for international tours & travels with exclusive trips;
• Offering volunteering at local projects, while living in a local host family and experience the real Guatemala
• Offering language courses given by qualified local teachers.
This makes us the only local travel agency who includes all of this in their offer. We believe that Guatemala has a lot of potential and can be seen as one worthy travel destination.

In our offer, you will find all the stunning highlights of Guatemala, through the entire country. We arrange marvelous excursions to for example Tikal, Lake Atitlan, Antigua and the Chichicastenango market, but also the destinations off the beaten track, such as Quetzaltenango and surroundings, Semuc Champey, Nebaj and Todos Santos, Rio Dulce and the Pacific Coast. The itineraries are customized according to the client's interests, preferences and budget. Tours including Mexico, Belize and Guatemala are also available.

What makes us different from other DMC´s in Guatemala?
