Meet Gabino Cruz, 61 years old. Talk about an intense look. This is what Mr. Cruz shared with me:
1) I think it is a very good experience, there are many needs in this community but they came to work on primordial projects, that God takes care of their ways.
2) We thank you for the joy and fun you bring to the children, put a new roof on the health center and make improvements to the school and that have shown us that your investment is not only based on money, but also in your time and your work. They are a great example for our children.#
3) Who would think that at my age we would be able to get great help, in my lifetime I saw several projects where many donations came from foreign people but they were not given to people. On the other hand, you are witnesses of their contributions and the benefits they bring to us.
4) What we tell the world to come to our community and the needs that exist here. Guatemala is a beautiful country but unfortunately poverty does not allow us to advance.

The geometric patterns found on many Chichicastenango textiles represent figures found right in nature - such as volcanoes, mountains, ocean waves and eagle wings. The weavers are thoughtful with each and every thread, sharing a story and tradition in every stroke.

We love to create beauty without harm to the environment. Creating a space that is to be really enjoyed by our guests but that also blends in with the natural landscape.
