Book
Prepare for a unique Central American adventure from Mexico to Guatemala that's packed full of cosmopolitan cities, breathtaking Mayan ruins, idyllic beaches and incredible natural beauty. Journey from the madness of Mexico City, through the Yucatan Peninsula and to the colour of colonial Antigua. Discover the spicy flavours of Oaxaca, admire the stunning Palenque ruins, swim in the turquoise waters off the coast of Belize in Caye Caulker and arrive at volcano-rimmed Antigua.

    • This overland adventure covers big parts of Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, allowing you to see some of the best of Central America
    • You've never seen true colour until you've been to a Mexican market. Practice your bargaining skills, snap some photos and pick up traditional handicrafts at the markets in multiple destinations
    • Escape the Mexican heat in San Cristobal de las Casas. This old-world town is surrounded by ancient tribal villages that have retained their traditional customs and roots
    • Chichen Itza is one the New Seven Wonders of the World. It's not hard to see why - strolling around the ancient Mayan ruins feels pretty wondrous
    • A few days on Caye Caulker provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy laidback island vibes and exceptional snorkelling on the nearby reefs
    • A homestay in San Jorge La Laguna invites you to connect with a local family. Sit down for breakfast and dinner with your hosts and work on improving your Spanish
    • Visiting the colourful Mayan villages surrounding Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan Highlands is a humbling experience

Central America Encompassed met all our expectations. The local people we met were very appreciative of us visiting their country and welcomed us. The history and the sites of the Maya were fascinating.

While this is a basix tour there are lots of optional activities suggested - this means a lot of great experiences but don't be afraid to go it alone from time to time. Pace yourself with the optionals as they add up in terms of budget and endurance over 31 days!

We become family when we travel in a small group. We share travel experiences and each other's company. Those who had a great time were the ones who were willing to BE WITH the group, and not always choose to do their own private activity alone. Of course there are always options, but the real fun is the people with whom you share the Intrepid travel life.
