  • Is it necessary to pre-book optional activities?

    Your tour leader will run through all the options with you during your trip and you can decide what you'd like to do and pay as you go along for these so you don't need to pre-book any of the optional activities.

  • Is tipping necessary?

    It is normal and expected in North America to tip waiters, bar staff and taxi drivers or any type of guide. A minimum of 15-18% is standard in restaurants. If your tour leader's performance meets or exceeds your expectations, TrekAmerica recommends you consider a tip of US$5-7 per person, per day, in appreciation of the service you receive.

  • How is it possible to get cash while on tour?

    Throughout the Americas, ATM's and cash machines are readily available and major credit cards are widely accepted. Travellers Cheques are generally accepted and can be a safe way to take your funds but aren't always the most practical, as foreign money exchange facilities, especially in Central America, can be limited. Credit cards are not accepted for the Food Kitty and many optional activities. Pre-paid credit cards can be a cost effective and safe way to take funds overseas. TrekAmerica suggests you bring US $150 with you in cash to start the tour with.

    A budget of at least an average of US$25/CAN$25 per day for meals and general spending is recommended for camping trips.

These amounts are recommendations only, how much you want to spend is dependent on your personal choice.

    Comfortable shoes are recommended and walking shoes or boots that will provide a more sturdy grip as well as good ankle support. A comfortable pair trainers will be ok, but be prepared for these to get dirty and make sure they do offer some grip.

  • Are hair straighteners and hairdryers allowed on the trip?

    Yes, hairdryers and hair straighteners are allowed, but make sure you bring plug adaptors and check the voltage as they can vary meaning your appliances won't work exactly the same as they do at home.
