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.
