San Cristobal el Alto is only a short 20 minute drive from Antigua. The 'Senderos El Alto' coopertaive arose from the great need to bring sustainable development to the village and was founded by a group of visionary and proactive community members. Activities in the community include hikes, tortilla making workshops, ceramics, artisan visits, and more. The community also has a couple restaurants to choose from.
Community Cooperative started in 2012| Locally Owned with 100% local staff
Although it is only 5 kilometers from Antigua Guatemala's "Colonial Monument of America" there is a huge difference between the development of this urban center and our beloved community; so this group of residents decided to "do things differently to achieve different things" for economic, social, educational and cultural development of our village. Thus the idea was born that working as a team to capitalize on the diverse experiences we offer can help us realize our dream of making this place a "Paradise Heights". The cooperative is comprised of artisans, farmers, professionals, businessmen, housewives and young students, who join their ideas, experiences and expertise to carry out the project; by the mix of knowledge and experience, it makes only our cooperative. Our organization was founded on October 26th 2012, initially by 22 founding members. We now have 33 members.
