Central America Trips

Why Central America?

Mayan ruins and mysterious landscapes create an air of intrigue in Central America, all beneath the tropical sun.

From Cuba to Guatemala, Central America offers a diverse blend of cultures, spanning the indigenous, colonial and multicultural. This is a region where you can explore Mayan temples deep in the jungle, immerse yourself in Afro-Cuban rhythms in Old Town Havana and master traditional Mexican cuisine in equal measure.

What kind of activities can you expect from our Central American adventures? You’ll explore the mysterious cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula, and relax on the soft white beaches of Isla Holbox. You’ll kayak through the mangroves of Tortuguero National Park in Costa Rica, before hiking the Arenal Volcano. And you’ll zipline through the rainforest in Belize, before escaping to a picture-perfect Caribbean island where you’ll swim with reef sharks and manta rays.
