Douglas Newlands review 5 Mar 2011
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Fantastic insight into many different cultures. Stunning and varied scenery in wonderful hot weather from the might of the Panama Canal to the jaw dropping beauty of the rain and cloud forests to the awesome splendour of the region's volcanoes and craters
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Do as much research as possible before your trip - I wished I had done more!
Try and learn some basic conversational Spanish - I wish I had learnt more!
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
Tourism is an infant business in many parts of Central America so the income is of great benefit to local economies, provided that said income is correctly directed to the good of the people of that area and not misdirected into other things that will not benefit either the local people or the environment
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
It was an absolutely stunning experience, greatly helped by the small group I travelled and very well organised and let by this travel company.
