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.

Fantastic! It was an incredible experience. The places included on the itinerary were just right. The right places in order to get a feel for the countries we visited. I can't stop telling my family and friends all about it. I feel like we did so much and saw so much. I was hesitant to book a group tour in case the group was too large or didn't have similar travelling styles. Perhaps it was a bit lucky, but we ended up in a group of only eight who were all very similar. With Cesar's leadership, it was a wonderful dynamic. Cesar was great to customise our tour by arranging private transportation with additional stops/sights along the way. His restaurant picks were so good! We ended up knowing that not only should you go with him for dinner, you should order what he ordered! Always delicious! I was interested in a couple excursions that no one else in the group wanted to do. Cesar was very helpful to arrange them just for me. The only negative was the one hotel in Copan. It didn't seem to have the same cleanliness standards as all the others and lacked AC (not terrible, but far more comfortable with!) Thank you! ”

Guide couldn’t have been better. Tour well organised and gave opportunities to experience as much as possible within a limited time.”

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. ”
