Eduardo Celada

My passion for showing the beauty of Guatemala began when I was traveling in Guatemala as a tourist in my own country. After working in several hotels and other tourism related businesses, I decided that there was nothing better than showing the rest of the world the beauties and destinations of my own country.

How did you get involved in travel?

"I have always been interested in culture and relating to the communities surrounding our tourist areas. Along the way, my knowledge has expanded not only within Guatemala, but to other bordering countries as well.
I have had the opportunity to know Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Belize and strengthen my knowledge with regional tourism partners of Central America.
All this helps me to recommend the best experiences, hotels and destinations tailored to the needs of each client looking for incredible memories.

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"No doubt, that traveling is one of the most unforgettable things you can do in your life, always finding interesting people in each place.
The first long trip of my life was a trip to Belgium in 2002 where I looked for a new adventure every day. One day I bought my train ticket to visit a friend of mine who was living in Amsterdam and this was my first time on a train, a very different form of transportation from what I’m used to in Guatemala. I did not know how to make the train stop at my station, so I assumed someone else would be going to my same destination. Unfortunately nobody made the train stop and I started to worry because I could not speak Dutch and did not know if my broken English would work.
I started to speak English to everyone around me and fortunately someone helped me stop the train, although I was already far past my destination. I left the train into a village and tried my broken English again. It was a little town and not many people understood my English when I spoke, finally I found an old man who took me into a store where I bought a phone card and could call my friend. It took 2 hours more to finally meet my friend, it wasn´t a big deal but when you are traveling alone and are really away from your home these little things make you feel really nervous. Now I can see it as one of the maybe "simple things" that happened in my trip but certainly I will remember it forever because it was one of my first experiences traveling alone.
