Faith in Practice Volunteer Information
Volunteers are expected to pay the cost of their own travel, lodging, food, and taxes. Typically, this cost is approximately $800 (plus airfare) which covers ground transportation in Guatemala, taxes, lodging, and most meals. Each volunteer pays his or her own airfare to Guatemala City. Additional expenses may include some meals, and any tourist activities that there may be time for (such as city tours or shopping).
