Attention: at this time, due to COVID-19, we are not accepting international visitors through 2021. However, we will accept Guatemalan visitors on a case-by-case basis for abbreviated tours. We will not be able to have visitors in areas around students due to the pandemic and health protocols in place. Please contact info@safepassage.org for more information.

Seeing is believing. Tour our program in Guatemala City and see firsthand who we are and what we do.

Safe Passage offers bilingual tours, Monday through Friday, which can be scheduled upon request.

Each tour lasts approximately 3 hours (plus travel time) and includes a viewing of the Guatemala City garbage dump from the city’s General Cemetery. Tours visit our Preschool, Educational Reinforcement Center, Adult Education classrooms, and allows the opportunity to shop at the Creamos recycled jewelry initiative. Your tour fee covers transportation costs and the service of our trained Safe Passage guides.

Our community is one of extreme poverty. Visitors may see difficult scenes of violence, addiction, and animal neglect. We recommend that visitors be at least 15 years of age; children under age 15 are the responsibility of their parents. Throughout the tour, trained Safe Passage staff provide historical and cultural information relevant to our community, our programs, and our mission. We encourage you to ask questions.
