Really great and thoroughly enjoyable trip. The three countries are quite different which was great to experience, you could easily spend 2 weeks in just one of them. I loved the trip to Ometepe Island in lake Nicaragua, the cycle ending at the natural springs was a great day out. Our tour leader Mike was brilliant and made the trip run like clockwork even through the border crossings.
Be prepared for rain when in central Costa Rica and Boca del Toros, we got soaked a few times both on and off the bikes!

The trip was excellent, everything was easy and hassle free thanks to our tour guide Mike, his professionalism, experience, knowledge and easy going attitude made the entire trip amazing. Our bus driver Brian and both mechanics were also fantastic and helped make the entire trip run smoothly.

The stay on Ometepe island was amazing as was the mountain lodge, each country had many highlights, it's difficult to choose one thing.

All in all an amazing experience.

A well co-ordinated tour that gave you a taste of the real Latin America. The tour leader, driver and mechanics were a great team. Well thought out cycling days mixed with time off to explore or relax. Highlights were Ometepe Island, two fabulous picnics, a night spa visit and a 71kms great days cycling. Tremendous views where we often stopped to take photos and warm friendly people we met along the way. Don't forget to take your gel saddle cover!

I enjoyed every aspect of the holiday from start to finish, it was so well planned and I felt completely safe regardless of concerns I had with Central America - I had no need at all, the people in Nicaragua and Costa Rica were lovely - most of the hotels were good, some great and a couple were not so great but fine to just sleep - the guide was just brilliant (Daniel) and being local meant he was able to show us so much more and spent all his time with us which I was not expecting! I cannot rate this holiday or company enough - if this is your first adventure holiday do it! - the cycling was good too ha! Carrie

A great trip despite challenging weather (Hurricane Otto). Wonderful scenery and all cycling on quiet roads.

A fantastic tour where about a months worth of activity is packed into 2 weeks. The Explore leader had an incredible knowledge of the countries visited and cycling. As the group was larger than usual we had the benefit of a fantastic mechanic who kept the bikes in tip top condition. The drivers were also really great. It felt like the whole Explore team worked really well together which made the trip trouble free. The itinerary was really interesting and visually stunning. I would love to do the whole trip again

A great look at central america: active volcanoes, two historic towns one dating to 1519, optional fabulous guided rain forest canopy walking tour, optional ziplining, spectacular mountain scenery, coffee and coconut plantations, lake and ocean beaches, and of course the Panama Canal. LOTS of climbing.

The tour was great- some spectacular sceneries around.

Accomodation was great (Colonial style) on Ometepe Island in Nicaragua, then again near Turrialba in Costa Rica and also in Panama City but very poor in La Fortuna.

Very, very hot as expected. Quite a lot of time in buses as expected given the total distance covered. I would have liked another week.
More challenging than expected but I was happy with that.
The bikes could have been better especially in Nicaragua.
Hotels and food better than expected. Lots of swimming.
Our guide was excellent and good fun - astoundingly competent for one so young.
Worth bringing binoculars as the bird life is spectacular.
Overall a very enjoyable trip with a great bunch of fellow travellers.

An excellent trip, all very well organised and our guide Chrisopher was brilliant.

The cycling was tough but as it had described, made harder be the heat!! All hotels were to a good standard apart from the service in the one in Santiago.
