"... he has experience putting together safe and enriching vacation packages..."

  • "When I needed to organize an ecotourism and sustainable travel experience for a group of students from my high school, Ryan Stimmel was the first person I contacted. I knew he has extensive experience putting together safe and enriching vacation packages that were both educational and fun. He filled our ten-day schedule with activities that allowed us to learn directly from members of the community in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala. We learned about history, culture, environment, and daily life. Ryan had great relationships with local NGOs so we were confident that our trip helped to support local organizations in a responsible way. We volunteered at a school, learned some phrases in the Mayan dialect of Tzu'tzu'jil, went canoeing to experience the livelihood of fishing on the lake, and many other activities. It was a great experience!"
