Tropicbird: Highlights of Central America

19 days from £3317pp
 

Group Journey

 

This journey brings together some of the cultural, architectural and geographical highlights of Central America. Visit the historically rich Granada, León, Suchitoto and Antigua – a few of the most beautiful cities in the New World, each with its own colonial slant. Travel to the little explored country of El Salvador and onto the Guatemalan highlands where, encircled by a ring of giant volcanoes, is Lake Atitlán, with indigenous market villages clustered along its shore. Finish your trip deep in the jungle at the abandoned Mayan city of Tikal. It’s an awesome archaeological site, the temples of which penetrate the wooded canopy, and further explore this magical rainforest from a lodge in the heart of Belize. You can expect to get the most from these fascinating countries at a relaxed pace, and enjoy a high standard of accommodation on this comfortable and engrossing journey.
