About Us

Who we are

Etnica works to provide a support system for developing communities who are exposed to threats such as migration, extinction of culture and traditions, unemployment and low access to education, among other conditions. 

We look to activate low impact areas such as fair trade, responsible travel and community projects for sustainable development. Through partnerships and active participation we are looking to create social and economic opportunities which can improve living standards, health, education and empowerment of artisans, farmers and community members. 

Mission

Create business opportunities for active members of developing communities in Guatemala through fair trade, local empowerment, community tourism and sustainability.

Vision

Be an inclusive and innovative organization that promotes interaction, responsible and conscious consumption; benefiting our clients and the local community by valuing their work, environment, traditions, identity and culture.
