TESTIMONIO DE EQUIPO

“I was so blessed by my time at Agua Viva this year. It was my first time at the beautiful orphanage in Guatemala. I have been to several Latin American orphanages over the years and it was evident that God has his hand over the staff and children. The work that is happening over there is nothing but a blessing to be apart of.”
As guests of Agua Viva your safety is our number one concern. Our campus is well protected and guarded. You will always be accompanied by an Agua Viva staff person whenever you leave our campus. For more information about travel in Guatemala visit the U.S. State Department international travel website.
While you must have a valid passport to enter Guatemala, US citizens do not need a travel visa.
Food is prepared onsite and purified bottled water is provided for drinking. When you travel off campus, an Agua Viva staff person will let you know where it is safe to eat.
There are no shots required to enter Guatemala or re-enter the United States. That said, we do recommend a recent tetanus shot. The CDC also recommends a Hepatitis A and B for anyone visiting a developing country.
There are four active volcanoes in Guatemala. Two are visible from Guatemala City. Pacaya erupted in May 2010. The other active volcano visible from the city is Fuego. It belches out puffs of smoke several times a day, sometimes small, but sometimes quite large and impressive. The other two active volcanoes in Guatemala are Santa Maria and Santiaguito. There are a total of 36 volcanoes in Guatemala.
