Heart of Travel is a female-owned travel company that offers off-the-beaten-path travel experiences in Latin America with an emphasis on cultural immersion, education, and sustainability. Founded by best friends, Chelsea Glass of California and Ana Castillo of Guatemala, they were inspired by the call to be part of a more just and fair approach to tourism in Latin America. Originally from California, Chelsea came to Guatemala in March of 2010 and has spent the last 11+ years traveling and living in various parts of Latin America while working in the tourism industry as well is language learning education. Ana, also known as “Chiva” was born and raised in Guatemala, though she spent a few years living in Tennessee between the ages of 3 - 6. Her passion for travel and language education took her to China for 3 years where she taught ESL before returning to Guatemala and pursuing a career in the travel industry. Together this dynamic duo shares the beauty and intrigue of Guatemala while dispelling myths and proving you with a more comprehensive representation of this amazing country!

I'm sorry to give such a low marking, but I had to give up because the camera was going completely out of focus.

What an enthusiastic duo! I love the energy of these two wonderful guides. Chelsea and Ana did a fantastic job of telling us about Antigua. I'm not sure what my preconceptions were exactly, but they definitely made me feel like it's an option to visit as a tourist. They were super friendly and willing to engage with us voyagers. I look forward to more tours with you both. I'm particularly keen to learn about the traditional medicines, plant medicine etc, sounds awesome.
