“It was an amazing trip - I was attracted by the variety it offered and it didn't disappoint: wildlife/National Parks, colonial cities, Caribbean Islands, mountains and of course the Panama Canal. We got a great sense of Central America including its history which is fascinating. So many different boat rides too which were great. It was the first time this trip had been run and they just need to sort a couple of the hotels out which they said they will do - the majority were lovely.”
“Just back from a wonderful adventure travelling the length of Nicaragua , Costa Rica and Panama . Rid yourselves of preconceptions about war torn Nicaragua , over populated Caribbean beaches and that Panama is only about hats and canals and you will have a great experience .Travel from Volcano to jungle and experience the wildlife, geography and culture of this little travelled path through Central America . Be prepared for early starts and busy days along with the excitement of some rustic boat rides into the interior and you will not be disappointed - ..”
“Great way to get a flavour of the three countries. The trip was well organised, great guide and support team - Andres, Paul, Ronald and Alvaro. Good bikes in Costa Rica and Panama, okay in Nicatagua. If I could change one thing, I'd have brought my own saddle. Some challenging hilly rides but also well organised technical/food stops. Excellent extra activities like a night volcano trip in Nicaragua, boat will life spotting trip in Costa Rica and Miraflores locks visit in Panama. Good internary, we've visited some cool and beautiful places, however two nights in La Fortuna was one night too many, and two nights in Panama City was one night too many. Otherwise a fantastic trip.”
“Picked this trip based on the itinerary that provided an excellent option to explore 3 countries in Central America on bikes for those with limited time. For someone who likes to travel over xmas this trip was a good fit with mainly dry weather.”
“A great trip offering a real variety of landscapes, wildlife, accommodation and experiences. The cycling was sufficiently challenging to feel we earned our pre-dinner cocktails and was a really enjoyable way to appreciate the rain forests, lakes and volcanoes. Plenty of time to relax as well. It was fun to feel part of a team and we were well supported by our guides and driver. 300 miles and 3 countries in 2 weeks feels like a real achievement with lots of good memories.”
“This is a great trip to see 3 Central American countries. Each has different history and presents different experiences for tourists from jungle, wildlife, ocean and lake viewpoints, infrastructure marvels and lots of seafood!
Exodus does a great job and ensuring border crossing and logistics are organized to ensure it's a holiday.”
“This holiday was simply amazing. We cycled through three incredible countries supporter by a wonderful leader Roberto and his team. Everything was so well organised from the very moment we arrived and were welcome with a cold beer, to the very end. We were a bit unlucky since we managed to hit the first hurricane in Costa Rica in about 175 years. However Roberto and his team ensured we were moved to a safe place and could carry on with a plan B. This trip was incredible, so much fun and a great adventure. Recommend it very strongly!!!”
