We love hosting people and offer warm hospitality for groups of all sizes. Your group can come for a night, a week, a month or even more! We offer accommodations in private and semi-private rooms, small houses and large dormitories depending on your groups size. We also have jungle or lake side camping options.

We customize itineraries for teams to best utilize their talents. Teams can teach classes at the Jungle School or receive local workshops, assist the cooks or help with our construction and community projects. HIA has a wide array of ways for every team member to have a productive and enjoyable time. Put your heart in action, bring your family, friends and others and come discover the joys, diversity and the beauty of this culture.
A Global Apprentice is a specialized leadership training designed for people with a missions calling. A one month minimum stay is required to receive the wisdom this experience will offer. We look forward to investing in you and your high calling. You'll experience freedom and joy as you learn to serve and love unconditionally. This experience will help prepare you for a deeper committment here or anywhere in the world. Through a variety of activities both cultural and educational, you will be learning some of the realities of living and working abroad.
The HIA campus is a unique and beautiful place, off the beaten trail, outside the village of San Andres, Peten in Guatemala where you can come and lend a hand.
Located near Lake Itza, Hearts In Action will provide you with a peaceful and authentic jungle experience. We are a destination for birders where you can see hundreds of species in a day and enjoy the roars of howler monkeys along fascinating trails. We have a banana farm, organic gardens, mature fruit orchards and a botanical garden in the making. One of the most rewarding things about travel is connecting with the locals, at Hearts in Action you'll have time to make new friends. Everyday there are a myriad of fun, educational and cool activities happening. Chances are we can provide what you are looking for to make the most of your time in the Mayan Biosphere.
