Volunteer in Guatemala

1- How was the local ABV Coordinator and the support provided in-country?
They were always there when we needed her, it was helpful to have someone who speaks both English and Spanish and who is familiar with local hot spots, culture, regions etc.

2- What was the most surprising thing you experienced?
Seeing the volcano erupt every 20 min.

3- What was most difficult to experience?
The homeless people on the street, especially young girls with children.

4- Any tips for future volunteers… (clothing, travel, personal items, donations)
Don´t bring too much technology except for something to take pictures (and maybe a local phone). It will only distract you from exploring.

a. Haggle hard
b. Carry toilet paper with you
