Who knows Guatemala better than a local?!
At Cuscun we offer authentic experiences. Our off-the-grid tours and workshops have the aim of showing people the story behind traditional Guatemalan artefacts. We will guide you in a journey discovering local crafts workshops, chicken buses factory and Guatemalan traditions. We are locals, we support locals.

All of our tours begin and end with an authentic experience traveling in a pickup truck or chicken bus. We are happy to coordinate pick up at your hotel, hostel or homestay in any part of central Antigua.
