Description of 18-29s holiday in Central America

This 16 day Central American holiday is aimed at people between the ages of 18 and 29, so you’ll have a ready group of like minded travellers to share your adventures with. You’ll be travelling across Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, using modern local intercity coaches to get around and staying in small, locally owned budget digs, from hotels to guesthouses to homestays.

Your tour kicks off in Playa del Carmen, where there’s time for snorkelling, sunbaking and sampling the local beers before heading out on the road. Highlights of your trip include the epic ruins of Tikal National Park; the waterfalls, mountains and Mayan relics around San Ignacio;
Tulum, where you can chill out on one of the region’s most beautiful beaches in the shadow of a pre-Columbian walled city; snorkeling hotspot Caye Caulker, home to Shark Ray Alley and the world's second longest barrier reef; and the famous market at Chichicastenango, a colourful and authentic Guatemalan experience.

Responsible tourism

18-29s holiday in Central America

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We encourage all our passengers to take steps to ensure that their trip is as environmentally responsible as possible. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with the appropriate disposal of rubbish en route and recycling wherever possible. We also encourage all our travellers to use refillable water bottles with purification tablets rather than contributing to the rapidly escalating problem caused by the copious number of plastic bottles discarded globally each day.

Our main aim on tour is to provide you with authentic, local experiences. To this end, on this journey you’ll use largely local buses to get around. As well as being by far the best option environmentally, this offers great opportunity for cultural interaction with your fellow bus travellers. Due to safety concerns however we do not use the brightly painted ‘chicken buses’ that are a common sight throughout Central America, instead using more modern inter-city coaches.

As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a ‘take in, take back out’ waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.

Community

The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travellers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.

This brilliant no-frills itinerary takes in the highlights of the ancient Mayan civilisation, giving travellers the opportunity to visit sites in Mexico, Guatemala and Belize. Focusing on low impact and even positive impact travel, this trip supports local industry and helps provide employment throughout the regions of Central America we explore. You’ll stay in small, locally owned budget accommodation, from hotels to a unique homestay in the famous market town of Chichicastenango (Chichi) and be accompanied throughout by a professional local group leader. There will be the opportunity during the trip to rent bikes and snorkelling equipment in Tulum, try kite surfing in Caye Caulker, go birdwatching in Tikal and buy local handicrafts at the enormous Chichi Market.
Your group leader will help with all these arrangements and their local knowledge will be vital in helping you get the best deal!

Meals on this trip are at your own expense giving all travellers freedom to choose the places you eat. When dining together, your group will eat in traditional, locally owned restaurants, and during the day will purchase food en route from local vendors and small cafes.

Travellers wishing to visit the Mayan ruins dotted across the region will find their entrance ticket to the sites helps fund conservation and restoration projects, while the local site guides also benefit from the opportunities tourism brings to their region.
