The tropical climate of Central America means conditions can be really hot and humid. Always carry plenty of water with you and stay hydrated, especially on walking tours.
Try to learn as many Spanish words as you can. Locals are very friendly, but also shy, so you'll need to make plenty of effort to break the ice. Attempting to communicate in Spanish is a great way of showing you care.
1. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm on Day 1. There are no activities planned for the final day so you may depart at any time.

This was an incredibly enjoyable trip. I enjoyed and embraced learning about other cultures and places. My favorites were activities in Antigua and Rio Dulce, Tikal and Tulum. I loved our tour guide, the dynamics of our particular group and the fact that Intrepid encourages eco-friendly activities. I loved what unique opportunities were provided but I most enjoyed meeting locals and becoming familiar with the communities in which we visited. It was an incredible experience. Wear sunscreen. And bug spray.

If you are after a trip where all the accommodation and travel hassles are sorted for you, then this it. We had a brilliant time with our guide who worked really hard to make sure we were all happy and had a great time. We really appreciated his insight into the local culture and his passion for responsible travel. We got to do and see so many things in such a short time that we never would have been able to achieve if we were travelling independently. Too many highlights to name and many of them weren’t listed on the itinerary thanks to the extra local experiences provided by our guide. Couldn’t have asked for a better trip.
