    The first half of this tour is for getting the blood pumping and the second half is for relaxing. This can be the wrong way around for some people, so consider how you want to start. It is a composite of two tours so you will swap a lot of group members, as well as the guide, halfway through. Some things, like time spent in Flores and use of travel days, can be improved but overall it was well organised, went smoothly and I'd recommend it with the right guides.

    Fantastic trip! I loved finishing up the tour with 6 nights along the coast. Big thumbs up for the ziplining in Monteverde, Costa Rica and flying over the Blue Hole in Caye Caulker, Belize. Guides were great and I actually liked the fact it was split into two tours. Nice to see some fresh faces, but don't get me wrong I loved my group :)

    Our guide was Juan Carlos. He was beyond my expectation of a tour guide. He was exceptional. Knowledgeable, attentive, personality plus, made you feel part of the land and the people. Transportation was part of the experience of Central America, just right and fun! It was the BEST group travel I have ever done and will do again in the fall
