Reviewed on 12 Apr 2022 by Adrian PickettLoved it..You will see lots of nature on this trip whenever you go. If you have the option pick a month when the turtles will be laying eggs or hatching on the Caribbean coast or the humpback whales will be passing the Pacific coast. Read full review
Reviewed on 25 May 2019 by Kathleen CullitonToo many to mention, really - it was all memorable! But the most memorable parts were maybe the cloud forest, the mangroves boat trips, Copan, Tikal or the growler monkeys. Read full review

Reviewed on 07 Apr 2014 by ANGELA HOLLANDThe trip to Tortuguera via bus and finally the boat journey through the rivers and canals was magical and the "town" itself was wonderful, a naturalist's dream!

PlanetWe just can't get enough of the Amazon, not only as a jaw-dropping travel destination but also as a global treasure and this trip will help to ensure that the incredibly Amazon Rainforest is here for us to enjoy for generations to come! By booking your Latin American adventure with us you're helping us work towards a sustainable future for the Amazon.
PeopleThis trip gives you plenty of opportunities to get to know the culture and vibrant history of Latin America. There are numerous chances for local interaction as we cover so much ground using all means of public transport. Youíll be surprised how much you can learn from a friendly local who strikes up a conversation during your journey.
Your leader and the occasional local guide will be able to direct you to many local eateries throughout the trip, helping you discover real local fare at real local prices (and probably helping you learn some Spanish at the same time). All travellers are encouraged to explore with the group and on their own, learn a few words of the language and interact with the locals as much as possible.
Local guides are employed to help explain as much as possible about the cultural differences and the historically significant places that we visit. This also allows us to appreciate the importance of preserving and respecting these sites and to help us minimise the impact of our visits.
There are plenty of opportunities to support local merchants in the markets and stalls that we pass along the way. We can purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans and learn more about the importance of preserving these crafts.
