Christie "This is a good trip if you don't have a lot of time to spare and gives you a quick overview of Central America. I'd definitely recommend doing this area in a tour, especially as a solo traveller who doesn't speak Spanish, I imagine the border crossings would be confusing alone!

    A good, well organised trip that takes you to some of the less visited spots in Central America (at least while Nicaragua is being bypassed). I was impressed with G Adventures travel ethic and the interesting, fun people they attract to their tours.... Read more

    This is a whirlwind sightseeing tour and not a carefree backpacking trip. We had hours of travel on the bus almost every day, and there were multiple days that had bus-boat-bus transfers, so consider your travel stamina before you sign up. It is not an... Read more

    Was not overly impressed and would have second thoughts about using again. Not sure how much that was the impact of the individual or guides...
