Nicaragua & Beyond

Steven · Traveled January 2024
Overall the trip was very good. Our guide, Ray, did an excellent job especially for someone who had never been to 3 of the 4 countries. I have two tips for people taking this tour. Do not participate in the horseback riding in Copan. If you want to go horseback riding do it somewhere else. It was not safe. The optional hot springs in Copan are over an hour away from the hotel. The local guide made it seem like they were 5 minutes away.

Our tour guide, Ray, did an amazing job navigating the border crossings, and explaining the history and activity options for each country. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see the highlights and experience the culture of these 4 countries. There were plenty of activity options to choose from, and also the freedom to do your own thing. I felt safe during the entire trip and would definitely do another tour with Intrepid based on my experience. Thank you Ray for a great adventure!

Nicaragua & Beyond

A wonderful trip to see new cities and countries I wouldn't have otherwise visited on my own. There was much more driving than I would have liked, and I do feel this trip needs a minimum of two extra days to really enjoy the visits AND to break up the driving (some driving days were 8 hours). It didn't feel like much was really included besides the transport and the accommodation. That being said, I had a great time because some of the destinations had really great optional activities, but do think this trip needs to be longer so you can spend more than just a few hours in some of the destinations. With some tweaking of the trip structure, I think it can be awesome!

Way too much ground transportation and border crossing. Guide was not from any country we visited so couldn't give us any information. Very little included and trips expensive.

Sadly the worst Intrepid trip that I have done. Did not follow the itinerary and led by a guide who as not from the countries we were visiting did not feel qualified to give anything other than very basic information. Did enjoy travelling with a great group of people but the whole trip could have been so much better.
