Volcano Trail (JGS)
From the crystal-blue ocean teeming with marine life to tropical rainforests alive with jungle melodies, take the road less travelled on this trip through Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica with other travellers your own age. This is one of our most exciting trips, filled with breath-taking scenery and a chance to experience local culture with a 2-night homestay on the island of Ometepe. Enjoy a blend of public and private transportation, which not only keeps costs down but also gives you a chance to really meet the locals.
Highlights: Connect with the hosts of a homestay experience in Ometepe, relax seaside in the Bay Islands, laugh with the locals during a chicken bus journey, skip the bus and gain time (and comfort!) with a flight between Roatán and Tegucigalpa
Central America Explorer (CGCA)
The ultimate exploration of Mayan culture for those who want the complete experience but prefer a more comfortable option. Explore the ruins at Copán and Tikal, walk the cobblestones in the colonial city of Antigua, and take part in a Mayan tree-planting ceremony after a local lunch on breathtaking Lake Atitlán. From the Caribbean flavour of Livingston to soaring volcano views, your local CEO will show you the region’s hidden gems and make sure your trip burns brightly in your memory long after you've left this crossroads of Mayan culture.
Highlights: Explore ancient Mayan ruins and UNESCO World Heritage sites, meet local artisans and watch demonstrations of their traditional techniques, visit modern day Mayan communities and participate in a Mayan tree-planting ceremony, take a cooking class and enjoy the results for lunch
