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…
