Charles and Marla have led Insider Tours to sacred places in Mexico (Oaxaca, Chiapas, San Cristobal, the Palenque Pyramids and Monte Alban Pyramids), Guatemala (Chichicastenango, Tikal Pyramids, and the Maya Highlands, and Antigua), and Peru (Machu Picchu and Cuzco).
Walk The Talk:
Marla and Charles were visiting a Mayan Guest Lodge village, several years ago, and overnighted in a bamboo thatched-roof structure in the village, when 140 m.p.h. Hurricane Iris came through, destroying the forest, and creating havoc. A ‘take-home message’ included the reality, that many Mayan children who were barefoot, suffered lacerations… which prompted Marla and Charles, with the help of many friends, to organize a sandal and shoe donation drive. Over 1,000 sandals and shoes were airlifted from Arizona, to the villagers of Guatemala. We are dedicated to recognizing how fortunate we are, and with gratitude, initiate engaged compassion and kindness. Travel has afforded us an opportunity, in surprising ways, to connect with others and engage in self discovery.
