Ecuador Multisport (SEEM)
Speed is the watchword for this high-adrenaline active tour around Ecuador. Across nine action-packed days, you’ll bike Cotopaxi (an Andean stratovolcano), raft down rushing rivers, trek the lush foothills of Baños, and much, much more. Best of all, you’ll always travel with an experienced and passionate CEO who knows the quickest and most scenic routes to wherever you’re headed. Remember, you’re here for a great time, not a long time; slather on that sunscreen, strap on your helmet and hit the road/trail/surf!
Highlights: Whitewater-raft in the Amazon, trek to an active volcano, soak in mountain hot springs, speed down Cotopaxi Volcano on a mountain bike.
Best of Panama (CPPQ)
Panama has been a destination on the cusp of the mainstream for ages, but somehow still remains a secret. More greatness for us to enjoy, we say. This 8-day trip opens the lid on the natural splendour of this overlooked gem of a country, giving travellers the chance to hike cloud forests, snorkel the Caribbean and even discover where that delicious morning cup of joe comes from at a coffee plantation. Panama is spectacular, and the best way to promote it is by word-of-mouth. Tell your friends!
Highlights: Snorkel in the crystal-blue Caribbean waters in Bocas del Toro, take in the crisp air of the lush green highlands in Boquete, explore the Panama Canal, learn where your morning coffee comes from on a tour of a local plantation.
Connect with the rich history, culture and stunning scenery of Central America on this Local Living stay in Granada, Nicaragua. Immerse yourself in the colonial character of the city, visit a volcano, kayak on Lake Nicaragua or practice your Spanish. You’ll share a colonial house with a few other like-minded travellers but your free time is all yours. A CEO is there to take care of the hassles so you're free to make this the holiday you want—with new friends or on your own.
Highlights: Sharing a rental property with optional day trips and activities, connecting with Nicaragua's revolutionary past, slowing down and making friends with the locals, discovering a new-found love of salsa dancing, visiting an active volcano, wandering the architecturally stunning streets of this country's oldest city.
When most of us think "Thailand," we think bustling Bangkok, fresh and spicy Lanna cuisine, and flamboyant Buddhist temples. This trip introduces you to a side of Thailand that few see, partnering you up with a local hilltribe for an all-access glimpse into (very) rural life. Explore the village and the jungle that surrounds it, study ancient farming techniques, try your hand at bamboo-weaving, and learn about daily life in the hills from your more-than-welcoming hosts. Bangkok, schmangkok – head for the hills and discover what everyone else has been missing.
Highlights: Connect with a local Black Lahu community, savour home-cooked Thai food, experience local culture hands-on, learn about local hilltribe customs from those who live and breathe them.
