HIGHLIGHTS
  • The stars of this trip are the dramatic and varied landscapes of lush Central America. If you’re thinking active volcanoes, idyllic beaches and emerald jungles – this trip has got you covered.
  • Quaint Suchitoto is a contemporary arts hub with a colonial facade. Explore the flowerstudded balconies, galleries housed in 19thcentury buildings and a lake teeming with thousands of local birds.
  • Stray off the beaten track in El Cuco, where the darksand beaches are secluded, the surf breaks are pumping, and the sunsets are unforgettable.
  • Nicaragua is often neglected by travellers in favour of its neighbours, but their loss is your gain! Travel through Central America’s largest country and discover towns largely untouched by tourism.
The Central American Journey tour starts in Antigua and ends in San Jose. The Central American Journey tour is a cultural, religious and historic sites tour that takes 17 days. You will travel through El Cuco, Copan, Ometepe Island and 7 other destinations visiting Panama, El Salvador and 3 more countries. This is a guided small group tour. The tour includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

From tropical cloud forests alive with jungle melodies to vast freshwater lakes and active volcanoes, this pocket of Central America is a pure, unrefined paradise. Relaxing beneath shaggy palms on a dark-sand beach in El Cuco, or spotting colourful birds perched on the colonial facades of Suchitoto. Standing in the shadow of mighty Arenal Volcano or spotting sloths among the canopy of Monteverde, this 17-day Central American journey through Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica is perfect for those who like their Lonely Planet Experience 'la forma natural' (the natural way).

“This tour was fantastic.
My tour guide, Kelly, was super knowledgeable, funny, and a pleasure to be around!
The group of people from different countries, regions, and ages made it the best tour I have been on.
