"I really enjoyed his company and perhaps most of all his dog, Babas!"

  • "I was visiting my brother-in-law and went with his roommate Ryan Stimmel who led me up Volcano Pacaya. He was working for Old Town Outfitters at the time and I chose them because they seemed far more professional and established than any other adventure travel company in Antigua. I was impressed with Ryan 's knowledge of both the geography and culture of the area. He did a great job of presenting the information in an understandable and fun way. I really enjoyed his company and perhaps most of all his dog Babas! I remember the hike as being a truly magical experience and would recommend Ryan as a guide to anyone looking for an outdoor adventure in Guatemala that is also interested in a deeper understanding of their surroundings!"
