Dan-

Here are two other resources in Guatemala-

AIDG: (http://www.aidg.org/)- they do lots of work in Guat with biogas and other types of alternative energy.  i think they are located near Quetzaltenango- so more of a highland site.

El Pilar: (http://www.marc.ucsb.edu/elpilar/index.php) is an ancient mayan site that has been uncovered as an ancient forest garden.  They are in the north on the border with Belize.

buen viaje!
