Community Overview

Known as “The Land of Eternal Spring”, Guatemala is one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in Central America. Tourists travel from all over the world to climb its volcanoes, drink its coffee, and zip line through the rainforest.

However, the true beauty of Guatemala is its people.

Gripped by poverty, the people of Guatemala hunger for the Kingdom of God. The majority of Guatemalans practice a form of Catholicism, and it’s estimated many also mix in ancient tribal religions and cultural traditions into their faith.

Adventures’ Base in Guatemala has been established near Antigua since 2012. Our long term missionaries at the base love hosting Short Term Mission teams, inviting them into opportunities to serve in a variety of ways.

Top 3 Most Common Mission Trip Questions

Activities and Opportunities
  • Stove Installation: Many of the local Guatemalan families that live below the poverty line cook over a fire in their home. This leads to major problems from smoke inhalation, but is a generally accepted way of life. Installing stoves into these families’ homes is a great way to show love to the community and begin a relationship that will hopefully guide them toward Jesus.
  • Clean Water: Many of the same families also struggle to access clean water in their homes. This also provides us an opportunity to meet a felt need and share the love of Jesus as we install water filtration systems and train people about the importance of clean water.
  • Church Mobilization: We partner with local churches to train up Guatemalan missionaries. This is a great opportunity to invest in Guatemalans that will eventually move to another country to share the love of Christ, make disciples and plant churches.

Lodging

Our base has bunk rooms specifically built and designed for short term teams. You’ll have access to bathrooms, showers, meeting space and a kitchen, all behind a safety wall and gate leading to the compound. There’s plenty of space!

Groups will be lodging at our Base facility. Your team members will be separated by gender into separate rooms. Each room contains 4 sets of bunk beds, 8 beds in total.

If you are a light sleeper, we recommend that you bring earplugs. Each room has a standard bathroom with running water. Adventures will provide a pair of clean sheets for you, as well as a pillow and a blanket. Each room will also have a key that team members will be responsible for.

Meals

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided for the entire group, both on-site at the base, and while we’re out during ministry. Our cooks will serve a mixture of both western and Guatemalan meals. They will do their best to accommodate dietary restrictions but it is always best to bring food to supplement any dietary needs.

Travel and Transportation

You are responsible for your international airfare. You will be flying in Guatemala City and we will provide arrival and departure windows once your trip has been greenlit. There is no entry fee into the country.

We will handle all of your in-country transportation, either with our vehicles or one of our trusted bus companies.

United States citizens traveling to Guatemala will need a U.S. passport valid for at least six months past their intended length of stay. A ticket documenting onward or return travel is also needed. U.S. citizens can stay in Guatemala for up to 90 days without having a visa. Guatemalan law requires foreigners to carry their passport (or a copy) with them at all times. It’s a good idea to print off a few copies of your passport before traveling and then keep them in a waterproof bag while in Guatemala.

Health and Safety

The safety of our participants is a top priority for us. We have both an internal Risk Management team and external Risk Management consultants. We use a multi-pronged approach to risk management – including monitoring information from reporting agencies and relying on the knowledge of our ministry partners. In addition to our own protocols (e.g., students must be with an adult at all times), our ministry hosts and partners will provide trip specific safety guidelines for the particular trip location. Our Project Leaders are trained in risk management and have access to both on-field and home-office support.

No inoculations or shots are required to enter Guatemala.

Registration and Payment

$500 Deposit: This deposit is required to reserve your trip. At this point, you will lock in your trip and we will keep in touch with you going forward about preparation. This deposit is applied to the total cost of your trip.

50% Payment: Half of your total trip cost will need to be paid 3 months before your trip.

100% Payment: The remaining balance is due 2 months before your trip.

Project Leader

An adult Project Leader will be assigned to your team throughout the duration of your trip. They  will stay with you and your team, as well as engage daily with you throughout ministry and daily life activities. This leader will have strong missions experience, leadership experience and a demonstrated competence in the area of discipleship of youth and young adults. In most cases, your project leader will help with facilitating ministry, meals and daily debrief and devotional time. Your Project Leader will be assigned to your trip and you’ll have the opportunity to have conversations with them during the weeks leading up to your trip.
