Central America 18 to 35s tours

Sun, salsa (the eating and the dancing) and good times. Central America is where it’s at. Whether you want to kick back on the Caribbean coast, eat your fill of tacos in Mexico or go sloth-spotting in Costa Rica, there’s a Central American adventure waiting for you.

Why choose us

The ultimate adventures

You can’t travel to Cuba without riding in a vintage car but learning to salsa with the locals in a smoky nightclub is just as memorable. That’s why we’ve included the big-ticket items, as well as plenty of free time.

Local leaders, local connections

Travelling with an experienced leader means you can just enjoy the moment, rather than worrying about when the last train leaves. They’ll also share stories and take you to places that only the locals know about.

Small (but not too small) groups

Our groups are made up of 10 travellers on average. That’s big enough to create a good vibe, but small enough to explore a destination independently. And if you’re travelling solo, it’s the perfect number of new friends.

A sustainable way to travel

We believe that travelling sustainably is important. Through our not-for-profit The Intrepid Foundation, we are committed to supporting projects around the world – from reducing carbon in the environment to supporting the livelihoods of local communities.

Stay real in cool places

We think where you lay your head at night can be just as cool as what you see during the day. Whether that be sleeping on a sailing boat off the coast of Turkey or rocking to sleep on an overnight train from Berlin to Krakow.

Make your money go further

Want big-time experiences without the big-time price tag? Our 18 to 35s travel style means staying in simple, well-located accommodation, taking local transport and enjoying tasty local food, so you choose where your spending money goes.

This trip is a great way to see a lot of Mexico in a small amount of time. Our guide was fantastic - very organised! The buses were comfortable and all the accommodation was good. I thought the value for money was really good. Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to visit Mexico.

This trip was a dream come true! I had the time of my life travelling around Central America with the loveliest group of people, lead by the best of the best of tour leaders Benjamin! Don’t hesitate to book this trip! Central America is so beautiful and full of rich culture and hard working, kind people who want you to experience the best of their countries. Everyday was 10/10!!!
