    A trip that covers just about all of the central American countries, pack your patience (especially in the rainy season), take an up to date guide book and enjoy a varied scenery.

    You get a lot out of this trip, although come prepared for long days and quick stays in places you will want to stay longer in. Do your own research so you don't miss out on anything.

    A great trip, it gives you a real taste of the 6 countries visited and see\'s the highlights of each. Its tiring constantly moving, but there is enough time in each place to get a real feel for it.

    Intrepid is a great company to book with and the staff are very friendly. Just make sure your transfers are sorted as I know a few people had problems with these in arrival.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is it possible to have a room to myself?

      Yes. Please take note that there will be an extra charge for a single supplement room. Please contact us to arrange this.

    • What is the age range of the group going on this trip? Im looking to have a good time with some night life and not a group going to bed early. Are there other travellers travelling single on this departure?

      For the first half of the trip, they are currently all solos (only half of whom are under 40). For the second half, they are again mostly solos but only a couple are under 40. If you're looking for a tour with more night life then this might not be the best choice for you. Get in contact with us and our customer support team will work on pairing you with the perfect adventure.

    • Do you get a private room or do you have to share a room with someone?

      The advertised price is for twin share. If you're travelling solo, Intrepid will pair you with another traveller of the same gender so solo travellers are not obliged to pay a mandatory single supplement.

      However, should you like to request a single room, this can be added to your booking for an extra cost.
