Real Guatemala To Costa Rica

This tour includes:


All group trips are accompanied by one of our group leaders. The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. Intrepid endeavours to provide the services of an experienced leader however, due to the seasonality of travel, rare situations may arise where your leader is new to a particular region or training other group leaders. Your leader will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense, you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious, and social aspects. At Intrepid we aim to support local guides who have specialised knowledge of the regions we visit. If you are interested in delving deeper into the local culture at a specific site or location then your leader can recommend a local guide service in most of the main destinations of your trip.

The style of accommodation indicated in the day-to-day itinerary is a guideline only and may change. On some occasions, alternative arrangements may need to be made due to the lack of availability of rooms in our preferred accommodation. In these cases, we will use a similar standard of accommodation. Throughout the trip, we request that our properties prepare rooms in time for our arrival, especially if we're arriving prior to normal check-in time. However, this isn't always possible which means we won't be able to check-in immediately on arrival at some hotels. Instead, we can store our luggage and explore our new destination or on some trips, have use of shared day rooms until all rooms are available.

Itinerary of your trip Real Guatemala To Costa Rica

  • Day 1 Day 1: Antigua
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 1: Antigua

      Bienvenidos! Welcome to Guatemala. If you arrive early, why not explore all Antigua has to offer – from its vibrant colonial-style buildings and curved archways to the puffing volcanoes of Pacaya, Agua and Jumaytepeque. The number one stop for any chocoholic should be the ChocoMuseo, where you’ll get a history lesson and, more excitingly, participate in a chocolate-making workshop. In 1773, the city of Antigua was destroyed by an earthquake, but many colonial buildings have been restored and are fun to explore on foot. There are no planned activities today until your welcome meeting at 6 pm. Tonight, maybe sample a tamale – a local dish served in a corn husk – or some pepian – a rich, meaty stew – then it’s surely time for a mojito with your new friends!Accommodation: Hotel

  • Day 2 Day 2: Cerro Verde
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 2: Cerro Verde

      Today will be an early start as you journey across the Guatemalan border to your next destination, Cerro Verde, El Salvador. From rolling hills to rolling R’s, watch the world go by from the comfort of your private vehicle as you travel through lush volcanic landscapes and endless mountain terrain while learning the local lingo from your leader in an informal Spanish lesson. Arrive in Cerro Verde in the afternoon and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure.Accommodation: Hotel

  • Day 3 Day 3: Cerro Verde
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 3: Cerro Verde

      Today is all about fuelling up with local favourites and getting outdoors! El Salvador is home to pupusas – a flatbread made from cornmeal and often stuffed with delicious fillings like cheese, chicharron (fried pork) or refried beans. Visit a local street vendor with your group, watch a pupusa-making demonstration, and then try some! Yum! After, maybe visit Santa Ana’s volcanic crater for spectacular views of Lake Coatepeque, Juayua and Izalco Volcano. Or, instead of admiring the view from the crater, why not take a dip in Lake Coatepeque? There are many ways to keep busy in one of El Salvador's most beautiful national parks.Accommodation: Hotel
