Alcion: Central America Discovery

22 days from £2007pp

Group Journey


Jumping off from the Panama Canal, this really is a journey of discovery, revealing the highlights of 6 countries crammed into the isthmus linking Mexico with South America. Crowned by a chain of volcanoes, dotted with twinkling lakes, defined with coral beaches, blessed with a balmy mix of tropical and temperate climate, and punctuated with lively indigenous villages, Mayan ruins and impressive colonial towns, these lands offer a breathtaking experience for visitors.

The area is especially rich in its biodiversity, and extensive national parks have been established in the sultry rainforests, along the sparkling coastline and across the rocky mountain slopes, where profuse wildlife can be observed in its natural habitat. Explore some delightful towns, hike, ride, raft, shop, snorkel; there is something here to indulge every enthusiasm.
