Central America holidays: Three of the best

1. Costa Rica: The country's astonishing ecosystem accounts for 50% of the world’s animal and plant species, and on a trip with Exodus you can explore the full spectrum through a range of activities. Zip-line in the mist-shrouded canopies of the cloud forest, where the roars of howler monkeys resonate through the hills; glide through the tranquil canals of Tortuguero National Park; or bathe in natural hot springs while marvelling at Arenal Volcano

2. Cuba: It's a heady cocktail of vintage cars and cigars, faded colonial mansions and steamy cellar bars, soundtracked by the beat of salsa wafting through city streets. There’s a raw and colourful beauty to Cuba that’s impossible not to love. And with little traffic, it’s perfect to explore by bike. Stay in casas particulares, and gain a real insight into the lives of local people. Exodus will take you to the heart of the action.

3. Mexico: Tropical jungles, palm-fringed beaches, Indian markets, colonial towns and the majestic ruins of the Aztecs and Mayans... Mexico is a fantastic country of contrasts. Take time to explore the Yucatan Peninsula, where you’ll find the extraordinary ruins of Chichen Itza, Palenque and Tulum. 

Where adventure begins

Exodus began life in 1974, when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to western Afghanistan's Minaret of Jam – the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments. It was the hippy-trail heyday and the journey from Calais to Kathmandu departed from London in autumn, returning in spring. Soon we were also travelling to South Africa, and taking hardy adventurers to the Amazon Basin as well.
