Mark Twain

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts

Heart of Travel is a small women-owned business, born out of a deep-rooted love and passion for travel, art, history, food, nature, culture, and adventure. We offer small group Latin America tours with a focus on the local communities we work alongside. Founded by two friends and avid travelers, Chelsea from California and Chiva from Guatemala, Heart of Travel seeks to showcase the often undervalued and misunderstood countries of Latin America.


Chelsea was born and raised in California and first began studying Spanish at the age of 19. After more than a decade immersed in the language, along with her post-graduate studies in Spanish at CSU Sacramento, Chelsea is a fluent Spanish speaker and experienced language instructor. From 2012 to 2016, Chelsea worked in both tourism and language education (Spanish and ESL) while pursuing her M.A. in Spanish before moving back full time to Guatemala in 2017 to start Heart of Travel with Ana. Her own experience learning Spanish helps us provide you with the best tips and tricks to master the language. If she can do it, so can you!
