Volcano Trail

From the crystal-blue ocean teeming with marine life to tropical rainforests alive with jungle melodies, take the road less travelled on this trip through Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica with other travellers your own age. This is one of our most exciting trips, filled with breath-taking scenery and a chance to experience local culture with a 2-night homestay on the island of Ometepe. Enjoy a blend of public and private transportation, which not only keeps costs down but also gives you a chance to really meet the locals.

Day 1 Antigua

Arrive at any time.

Day 2-3 Copan

Option to tour the Mayan ruins of Copán or soak in local hot springs.

Day 4-6 Roatan/Bay Islands

Spend time on the island snorkelling, scuba diving or just relaxing on the beach.

Day 7 Leon

Skip a long bus ride and fly in style to Tegucigalpa, then continue overland to politically progressive León, Nicaragua.

Day 8-9 Granada

See Granada's colourful colonial buildings on an orientation walk. Opt to visit the active Masaya Volcano, kayak the isletas in Lake Nicaragua or chill out at crater lake Laguna de Apoyo.

Day 10-11 Ometepe

Get to know local friends during a 2-night Planeterra-supported homestay experience on Ometepe. Try the cuisine, test out some language skills and even opt to climb a volcano or visit the local swimming hole.

Day 12-13 Monteverde

Opt to visit a cloud forest reserve, fly through the jungle canopy via zipline or tour a coffee plantation.

Day 14-15 La Fortuna/Arenal

Options abound—soak in Arenal's hot springs or get the adrenaline pumping with whitewater rafting or waterfall rappelling.

Day 16 San Jose

Journey through the mountains to the capital for a final night out.
