Dear Advisor Partners,
I love sending out these dispatches, showcasing our adventures from the road. Each time we travel, we explore new routes and experiences. Dare I say, we have one goal in mind….break the status quo. Those of you who know us well, know that we don’t play to the galleries. We beat to our own drum. This time is no different as we aimed to redefine hiking trails no, not in Peru, but in Guatemala.
A few years back, my family and I were in Guatemala and wanted to explore the Mayan history beyond Tikal. Now, I’m a huge Star Wars fan so being at Tikal was important (watch the end of Empire Strikes Back to see what I mean), however, it can be quite busy after sunrise. Enter a visit to El Mirador by helicopter, a visit I won’t soon forget. I also remember the five-day hike and thinking that could be a really amazing new trail, similar to the one in Peru. Well, that moment arrived as our team member, Tatiana Johnston, just completed a successful visit to Guatemala, including a hike up the active volcanoes around Antigua. The highlight, however was her successful completion of the long hike into and out of El Mirador.
Stay tuned for more information on off-the-beaten-track Guatemala in this two-part dispatch.
Enjoy this week’s video.
