  • Description


    San Marcos la Laguna is a top destination for many travellers and our project has been in operation for a couple of years, but due a big face lift in order to improve tourist information and experience in the town

    The town itself is a convergence of cultures, with its roots in Mayan traditions. The streets are full of colour from both people and nature, with a real jungle environment. While you are with us there are a huge variety of activities to take advantage of in San Marcos: yoga, meditation, kayaking, trekking, live music, workshops from permaculture to soap making and so much more. This is a town with an amazing sense of community that is both a place to be inspired and inspire others.
