Visit Guatemala

Visit Guatemala via an Insight Trip and experience the country in its many varying capacities. Insight Trips are one-week trips to the Highlands of Guatemala surrounding Lake Atitlán. Led by Friendship Bridge staff, they offer an opportunity to

  • Meet our clients
  • See first-hand the impact our Microcredit Plus program has on women, their families, and their communities
  • Enjoy the culture, beauty, and uniqueness of Guatemala

Get inspired! Check out this time-lapse video of a day in Guatemala with Friendship Bridge. And join us on the next trip or create a customized trip with six or more of your friends, family members or colleagues.
