Dating back some 4,000 years, the ancient Maya Empire has left its mark on the region with soaring lost temples and perfectly symmetrical pyramids displaying hieroglyphic script and fascinating astronomical systems. Today Central America is home to a thriving tapestry of cultures with heavy African, Caribbean and Spanish influences. Outdoor adventure abounds in Central America set against a stunning range of landscapes - zip line through the misty canopies of cloudforests, canoe along raging rivers peppered with beautiful waterfalls, hike around the base of rumbling active volcanoes or dive off the coral-fringed coasts.

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.
