poole, dorset
In no particular order:
Panama Canal - actually didn't think I'd be so intrigued by it, but was
Montverde Cloud Forest - wished there had been time for zip wire as well as canopy walk.
Perfect volcanoes by the score, and one even spewed lava for us near Antigua
Monkey encounters, and general fauna
Warm Caribbean waters
General flora - bromeliads by the billion
Info and sites of Mayan culture

Dip your toe in the Pacific Ocean when in Panama, don't get opportunity again, even though so close when in Leon.
Bring book/music for long minibus journeys, though I was happy just staring out the window at the scenery.

I absolutely loved this trip! So much was crammed into the time. I loved the variety of places visited and the range of experiences on offer. Highlights included Bocas del Toro, completing a zip wire canopy tour, volcano walks, diving on Roatan, the Mayan ruins at Copan. The hotels were good and well situated. Romeo was great - knowledgeable, approachable, good humoured, considerate. He was always at hand to share information, offer advice and make life easier for members of the group. An excellent guide.

Covered a lot on the tour - so much to see in every country, but tour didn't feel particularly frantic. Plenty of time to relax in between travel, and enough free time to do what you wanted.
Highlights included snorkelling in Bocas del Toro, wildlife in Sarapiqui, Ometepe, Revolution Museum in Leon, exploring Copan, Antigua and beautiful Lake Atitlan.
Suggest spending a few days in Panama acclimatising before joining the trip. Recommend the Panama Canal Railway (surprised it wasn't included in the tour as its the only railway in Central America)
Expect some rain in the rainy season!

The variety of places, accommodation and activities. It was classified as 'Full On" and it was so be prepared for that. Too many highlights, as with most Explore trips, but the ones that spring to mind (it was a year ago!) are Panama Canal, Caribbean-type beaches, all types of forest and fauna, trip to a chocolate plantation and museum, Copan ruins, old colonial cities and particularly a Sunday visit to the Mayan town of Chichicastananga in Guatemala.

Well we have done a lot of travelling with Explore and they always go off the beaten track where other companies don't go which is good.
