Caribbean rainforest lodge, Costa Rica

Located on 34 acres (14 hectares) close to the entrance to Tortuguero National Park, this superb rainforest lodge ticks all the boxes: comfortable rooms, great food, easy beach access (a 5-minute walk away), friendly bilingual staff, an excellent pool and, even better, a spa.

Homestays in Cuba

With a strong emphasis on family, Cuba is one of those countries in which an experience of home life is priceless. Whether it’s a homestay on the Caribbean coast or a two-day stint with a Havana family, it’s the best way to get to know the culture and customs as they really are. 

A taste of what's in store..

Each of Intrepid's family trips has been built with a smooth blend of action-packed activities and flexible family time, just the way we like it. Want to know the sort of adventures you can expect with us? We’ve picked out a few of our favourites.

Isla Floreana, Galapagos Islands

Green beaches? Check. An intriguing history? Check. Mega wildlife-watching opportunities? Of course. Isla Floreana has long been considered a highlight of the archipelago, famous for its 18th-century wooden postbox where the ships of yore came to collect the mail. Travellers can still post letters in it today.

Sacred Valley, Peru

Meet the local artisans, farmers and townsfolk of the Sacred Valley, a place where tiny farming hamlets dot the landscape and oxen still tend the fields. And let’s not forget the cute alpacas and vicunas. A scenic walk through the Andes leads to Chinchero, where the locals invite you in for the night.

View trip


Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

Blinding white sands and amazing Maya ruins are the stars of the show on this far eastern outpost of Mexico’s coastline. Laze about on Tulum’s pristine shore, explore Coba Archaeological site by bicycle and go snorkelling in a limestone cave in the jungle at Xkeken Tourstation.

View trip

Pacific Coast, Costa Rica

Not many countries combine jungle and beach like Costa Rica. Enjoy some time in Manuel Antonio Park, where the options seem endless. Hiking, horse riding, zip-lining, kayaking and dolphin-spotting are all good ways to explore this Pacific paradise. If it all gets too much, just while away the day on a secluded beach.
