The SERES Center will be built on a 25-acre property located near the town of El Rodeo in the town of Escuintla, Guatemala. It is located approximately 42km on the CA-1 from Guatemala City and 23km on Route-14 from the popular tourist destination of Antigua on well-maintained, paved highway.
The land is located in a stunning location that features views of 4 of Guatemala’s volcanoes to the north and east of the property – two of which are active (Fuego and Pacaya). To the south of the property, the landscape drops away towards the pacific slopes where sugarcane – Guatemala’s largest export – is grown and on clear days you can see the Pacific Ocean, approximately 60 kms away. It is also close to La Reunion Golf Resort which is regarded by many golfing enthusiasts as one of the world’s best golf courses and provides an option for top-end accommodation for people wishing to visit the center but requiring alternative accommodation arrangements.
