Guatemala Family Vacation | Woodstock New York
Our love affair with Guatemala first began 30 years ago when we traveled to Guatemala as backpacking tourists. We fell in love with the people, the landscapes, the markets, the colors, the weaving, and we ended up purchasing a vacation home in the village of Santa Catarina Palopo.
Each year, for the next 10 years, we returned and helped in the community, built a home for a local family in the village and enjoyed the special experiences that only Guatemala provides.
As life would have it, our lives changed in the United States, we ended up selling our home in Guatemala, purchasing a restaurant in New York, and our time to travel each year eventually came to an end.
Fast forward 20 years, and we find ourselves traveling back to Guatemala with our 11-year old daughter in tow. For years our daughter had heard our stories of wonderfully magical times at Lake Atitlan and a saw a few now tattered pictures—our precious memories of the our life and the people who were so special to us.
