Yucatan Peninsula Adventure

Marian · Traveled May 2024
An excellent trip but a little rushed in places. The fast pace makes for a stimulating holiday of culture, food, fun and experiences. Our group was amazing as was our group leader Susana.

Costa Rica & Panama Discovery

Jennifer · Traveled May 2024
The Trip was so much fun. Jonathan did his best to make our trip the best for us. Because its basic you don’t have that much activities included but Jonathan always helped us out and got recommendations for every place. The cooking with the caribbean family was one of my highlights. Even tho it was rain season we had mostly sun and humid wheater. it rained a few times, but it was fine. Would definitely do it again! Especially with Jonathan as the Group Leader.

Heart of Guatemala

Justine · Traveled May 2024
Exploring Guatemala is a one of a kind experience! If you want to be off the beaten track and fully immersed in Mayan traditions, culture, and food, this tour is a must! Absolutely sign up for the Mayan cooking class!! Spending a the first and last day of the trip exploring Antigua is a wonderful way to start and end the Guatemalan journey :)

Best of Mexico

Rachael · Traveled May 2024
The intrepid trip to Mexico was fabulous. Karla our guide was a beautiful person who went above and beyond to ensure everyone had a great experience. Karla is a great asset to Intrepid and has a vast knowledge of every area we visited. My husband and I met some wonderful tour members and enjoyed every moment.
