Rich Culture Makes Memorable Meeting Experiences

Latin America culture is a true expression of its people and their culture. The richness of the culture of each country in Latin America is the product of their influence and history.

Pre-Columbian cultures are more notable in countries as Mexico, Guatemala and Peru as well as further south in Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay.

The southern part of Mexico, which states include Tabasco, Campeche and Yucatan, share their Mayan heritage with Guatemala. Each country boasts magnificent Mayan temples such as Tikal in Guatemala and Chichen Itza in the Yucatan.

Having a first-hand cultural experience is a memorable experience for your groups.
