Asociación Ak’ Tenamit
Ak’ Tenamit supports local efforts to develop a community tourism industry in the Rio Dulce region it serves. It works directly with communities that are developing themselves as tourist destinations by providing training and logistical support.
Ak’ Tenamit has helped two villages start a community lodge and organizes workshops with communities to teach them to run a successful tourism project. In addition, our vocational school’s Sustainable Tourism degree program prepares students to become leaders in their communities’ tourism efforts; students graduate with 3,000 hours of job experience through apprenticeships in restaurants, hotels, as tour guides, and in administrative offices.
