Standard airlines specify one suitcase and one carry-on. Details about size of bags (and other details) can be found at the United Airlines website here.

What if I have food allergies?

Approximately one month prior to our trip (if not sooner), you will have the opportunity to share about your allergies. Our partners in Guatemala will work to ensure you always have meals you can eat safely.

What costs (beyond my registration payments) will I be responsible for?

All of your Guatemala expenses are covered--including all meals, lodging, travel, etc. The only things you will pay for out-of-pocket are airports snacks/meals, discretionary items such as an extra afternoon latte or soft drink, souvenirs, etc. 

What about tipping?

Tipping is covered in the fees you have paid (or are paying)--including guides, bus drivers, servers, translators, etc. Please do not tip otherwise.
