    4.0 - Good

    In overall I enjoyed my 32 days Central America Tour. It took me to the places I would never make on my own without knowing Spanish. It is a well organized tour with professional tour leaders. My group had a variety of people from 18-66 yo, we had from 9-16 people on different part of tours. Mostly from Australia, Europe and Canada. All professional. It was few hiccups between the group members, nothing that you would not expect within any group of people. If you are not a people person, or you need to be alone sometimes to regenerate, ask for a single supplement to avoid these issues. And have FUN!

    4.5 - Excellent

    My trip with intrepid was very good. We covered a lot of area. My guide Maurico Ramirez is 2nd to none. His knowledge energy and passion for central America made the journey all so much better. We got to learn about local flora and fauna in depth, The transport was made so much better as he was always able to get that little bit better for what was budgeted for. He had great organisation skills making the most of everyday.

    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.

      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.
