Experience Guatemala with the Tribe

We're going back to Guatemala, which is fast turning into a Tribe favorite. This Central American destination will mesmerize you with its colonial architecture, volcano-specked landscapes, delicious coffee, and a culture influenced by the Mayan empire.

1. Surrounded by Volcanoes

Guatemala is home to over 20 volcanoes, giving this country a unique energy that's palpable the moment you arrive. Our home in Antigua is placed right at the foot of several of these magnificent - and active - volcanoes, giving you the chance to marvel at their power on a daily basis. 

2. Visit the Tikal Mayan Ruins

Step back thousands of years and let yourself be awed at the ancient limestone Tikal ruins, which were home to one of the largest indigenous populations in all the Americas. The six square mile UNESCO site contains more than 3,000 buildings built by the ancient Mayan people.

Hike an inactive volcano (Acatenango) to see an Active one (Fuego)!

A spectacular sunrise from a volcano with a view of even more volcanoes. Waking up at night from eruptions. A hike through several ecosystems upwards. It doesn’t get more impressive than conquering this active volcano.

4. Taste the World's Finest Coffee

If you're a coffee fanatic (and what nomad isn't?!), you're in the perfect place to explore some of the world's most delicious java. Your caffeine buzz in Guatemala will be one of the highest quality ones you've ever had! 

5.  Experience the Local Market

Immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of Antigua's local market, where you can find fresh produce, traditional crafts, textiles, and souvenirs. Interact with the friendly locals, and get a taste of everyday life in Guatemala.

6. Explore Antigua's Historic Center

Take a leisurely stroll through the streets of Antigua's Historic Center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire the well-preserved Spanish Baroque-influenced architecture and visit landmarks such as the Santa Catalina Arch and the Cathedral of Santiago.

7. Savor the Local Cuisine

No trip to Latin America is complete without awakening your taste buds to the local street food culture, freshly caught seafood, and locally-inspired dishes.

8. Take a Dip in Lake Atitlan

The sacred shores of Lake Atitlan have attracted adventurous souls and spiritual seekers for decades. Immerse yourself in the healing powers of nature, practice yoga in the hippy-style town of San Marcos, and watch the sun set over the lake as you relax with friends and escape the grind.

Meet the Chapter Host

Joanna

My name is JoJo and I’ve been a happy triber since 2021. After 10 incredible chapters, I’m beyond thrilled to dive even deeper into this community as a host! I was born and raised on Long Island, NY (Mets fan, of course) but am now based out of Atlanta, GA. My love for travel (and obsession with the U.K.) started with my wonderfully cliched study abroad experience in England. I’ve worked in social media strategy for a few years and am now focusing my career on community building. I love embracing my nerdiness, dance parties, road trips, game nights, scary amounts of caffeine, and cheap whisky.

Casitas

Highlights

We are going to call beautiful Antigua our home for the month. Nestled amidst lush volcanic landscapes, this wonderful city exudes charm with its cobblestone streets, colorful architecture, and picturesque views of ancient ruins. When taking a break from work, you can explore the city’s lively markets, indulge in local cuisine, or immerse yourself in the fascinating Mayan heritage. 

We have 4 beautiful casitas in a private secured compound. located in an authentic, friendly neighborhood just 6 blocks from the Central Square (Parque Central).

We got access to a heated swimming pool,  Jacuzzi/Hot tub, a beautiful and tranquil courtyard, surrounded by lush vegetation, fully-equipped kitchens for those that enjoy cooking and open fire places. 


Good to Know

This small city (less than 50,000 population) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with amazing green landscapes, multiple volcanoes surrounding the valley, beaming with Central American culture, and crumbling ruins. A destination that you almost count as remote but strangely is also home to Wendy's, Dunkin Donuts & Subway. 

Make sure to pack appropriate clothing. Daily high temperatures are around 72°F (22 Celsius), rarely falling below 67°F (19 Celsius) or exceeding 77°F (25 Celsius). 

The Internet can be impacted by bad weather as most of the Internet comes from antennas positioned on the mountains/hills/volcanos surrounding Antigua. In case that happens we have our usual MiFi devices as backups and there is also other coworking cafes we can take advantage of. 

All rooms have an ensuite bathroom or a bathroom near to the entrance of the bedroom. Most of the rooms will have a desk but we cannot guarantee that all the rooms will have a desk & chair. All the rooms differ in space and size as well but are all fully functional. See our upgrade options for more info if you'd like to be guaranteed a certain amenity.

We have three amenities categories we look at when selecting the upgrade rooms:

  • Functionality: desk, chair, kitchen, ensuite bathroom, privacy, AC, kitchenette or kitchen, fridge, walk-in closet or extra storage space etc.
  • How it looks: balcony, terrace, views, size of room, size of bed, windows/natural light, decor, living room or seating area, couch, coffee table, mirror etc.
  • Mixed: When possible, the room shares some of both of the above.
  • Securing the upgrade guarantees that you get the amenities you've paid for.
  • Upgrades that have not been secured will be assigned to members based on a number of different factors by the host (order of booking, circle level, etc.)
  • If all rooms have a particular amenity such as AC we do not offer upgrades for that particular amenity.
