An undiscovered traveller's gem
You just won’t believe it … spanning eight countries you will find 300-plus volcanoes, two long tropical coasts, one with chilled-out Caribbean vibes and the other with monster Pacific swells, magnificent Mayan ruins, bustling markets and flourishing farms …it doesn’t get much better and yes we get it – we see what all the fuss is about.
Like its southern neighbour this part of the world has a geography for adventure and you’ll find yourself on many a jungle canopy zip wire eyeballing a howler monkey, or white water rafting down the rapids.
But it’s not all about nature, the culture here is mind blowing… today you will experience a great mix of chilled Caribbean, Spanish siesta’s and Congo drumbeats all rubbing along with the Mayan history which weaves from Mexico to Honduras. Preserved by the shade of the jungle, 5 spectacular ruins have survived. The best one of all being the lost temples of Tikal, soaring above the Guatemalan jungle canopy. Expect a spine-tingling moment as you step back 4000 years.
