Flavio gave us the best day of our trip. He showed us so much and introduced us to many locals. The walk felt more like hanging out with a friend who was a local than a guided tour. Don’t get me wrong, this is very much a tour but Flavio’s charisma and attention to detail make it so much more personal. We sampled honey and wine while learning about stingless bees. We visited various shops and met local artists. We were given a traditional Mayan weaving demonstration while touring a textile shop. We toured a chocolate shop that allowed us to sample all types of chocolate and several flavors of chocolate alcohol, all made on site. We visited a coffee plantation, met the owner, learned the history while sampling his wonderful coffee. The walked highlighted the culture and beauty of San Juan La Laguna and I couldn’t believe it was free. Please do yourself a favor and book a tour with Flavio.
