Biography of Luis

After finishing high school in 2000 he did not have the opportunity to go to university, so he had to work as a day laborer in his community. He worked for more than six years.

Luis started learning English from scratch in 2006 with Elizabeth Millet, a Peace Corp volunteer who stayed in his  town at that time. In 2008 He  was able to have a conversation in English, so he started touring at Lake Atitlan since then. After a couple of years he wanted to tour in other areas of Guatemala, so he went to a tourism school in Guatemala City to get his license as a national tourist guide.
