Eco-Adventure & Service Trip in the ancient Mayan cloud forest of Cerro el Amay:

You are invited! We are looking for a small group of ambassadors to journey with us into the ancient cloud forest of Cerro el Amay in Guatemala, and the home of the indigenous K’iche’ people.  We have been fostering a beautiful relationship with these people for the past 7 years and it is an honor to share in our cross-cultural sharing with you.  While in Guatemala, we immerse ourselves in:

Cloud forest ecology

Daily village life

Cultural customs

Traditional food preparation

Local craft techniques

Native tree restoration

Caving & waterfall exploration

Soccer & village games

Musical and arts sharing

Swimming & Cliff jumping

This is part of our legacy project.

Inchanted Journeys is working with the Cloud Forest Conservation Initiative, IMAP, FUNDAECO, CONAP, Rainforest Trust and others to coordinate this journey of discovery, adventure, and service. In the last 2.5 years, we have raised over a $6.2M to protect this ancient forest because of this eco-adventure and connected efforts.  All of these funds have gone directly into land conservation, land purchases, and to support local staff salaries.  Some of the proceeds from this Journey will aid in the preservation of the cloud forest, the conservation of the rural Forest Mayan communities we are teaming with, as well as continue to support additional field research as we discover new species to science every year!  More information on our NGO:   www.forestprimeval.org
