Why career retreat in Guatemala?

It is very personal experience: I fell in love with Latin America (especially with Central America) and have gone working here at least two times per year since 2013.

These countries  and their tourist locations are very safe, with amazing nature, ocean and a lot of sun which give you great energy.

All these countries are very colorful, full of inspiring cultures with friendly people, music, vibrant atmospheres and great food.

I believe that you will leave these countries after our retreat (as I do all the time) with a wide smile and energy for your new career steps.
