Evacuation from the highlands of Guatemala is a possibility you should consider. Broken legs, bee stings, you name it — sometimes life will throw you a curveball! We do not take risks lightly, which is why all G’WA participants are required to carry Emergency Travel Insurance. We can assist you to ensure you purchase appropriate and reliable protection, just in case. This is Sam’s area of expertise, and while we don’t anticipate any issues, insurance is a hard requirement.
Guatemala’s culture embodies the spirit of flexibility, ingenuity and helping out in a crisis. Our trekking path has ample access to exit points that would allow for safe and convenient re-entry to one of the larger towns should you find you need to leave for unexpected reasons.
