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.

An excellent trip that exposes you to Mayan ruins and history, the culture and history and colonial influence on local towns , and a wide range of different geographic regions, from the beach and ocean, to rainforests, mountains, volcanoes and cenotes - bring your camera! You will do more than you could on your own for sure.
