5 countries, 10 stops and 17 days… That’s Intrepid’s Central American Journey in a nutshell.
Starting in Antigua, Guatemala and finishing in San Jose, Costa Rica, the trip also features ruins in Honduras, islands in Nicaragua, beaches in El Salvador and so much more. Yes, that’s right. If you want a taste of this gorgeous region, you need look no further.
To capture just how alluring Central America is, and what it’s like on one of our many trips there, we sent photographer April Wong. A frequent Intrepid traveller and talented photographer, she did an amazing job of capturing some special experiences in some special countries.
Check out her photos from the trip, and consider embarking on an adventure there of your own…
Learn about Guatemala’s famous coffee, take a salsa class or simply take in the architecture of this colonial gem.
Copan’s World Heritage-listed ruins are as unique as they are worth a morning’s browse.
Suchitoto, El Salvador
With colourful houses and cobbled streets aplenty, Suchitoto’s town center and surrounds are simply a delight.
El Cuco, El Salvador
If you like dark-sand beaches, great surf and fresh seafood, you can’t go wrong in El Cuco.
Ometepe Island, Nicaragua
Though known for its twin (hike-able!) volcanoes, Ometepe is an island boasting so much more. Soak in hot springs, laze on the beach or check out ancient rock carvings – and that’s just for starters.
Monteverde, Costa Rica
Monteverde is a nature lover’s paradise and home to cloud forests so epic you won’t forget them in a hurry.
La Fortuna, Costa Rica
La Fortuna is situated just by Costa Rica’s most famous volcano and is an ideal spot to indulge in a hike or boat safari.
San Jose, Costa Rica
The country’s capital, San Jose is brimming with markets, museums and local-led day tours.
