Fronting the Caribbean Sea to the east and Pacific Ocean to the west there is no shortage of pristine coastline, golden beaches and idyllic coral-fringed islands to explore. As a biodiversity hot spot Central America is home to a staggering array of weird and wonderful wildlife across a variety of landscapes from mountain ranges to fertile valleys, tropical rainforest to towering cloudforests. This results in endless opportunity for outdoor adventure from canoeing down rapid waters and zip lining through the canopies to hiking around active volcanoes and surfing off the coast.

Enjoy an authentic travel experience on one of our group tours getting around by public transport and staying in locally-owned guesthouses with plenty of opportunities to meet the locals.

Gina was an absolutely fantastic tour leader - she was energetic, fun-loving, extremely passionate about her job and the countries we visited and could not have done more to make sure we all had a great time.

I made friends of similar age on this tour and there was an excellent mixture of beaches, socialising, history and culture incorporated into this tour. I was able to get a real feel for the countries I visited and the three countries on this tour could not have been more varied which made it all the more adventurous. The hotels were lovely - often with pools and rooms to a high standard.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a better idea of Central America as these are three fascinating, different and beautiful countries with an organised tour leader and excellent customer service directly from OnTheGo. ”
