  • About South & Central America

    • If you think Spanish is the sexiest language in the world and you could easily eat corn (done all ways) for the rest of your life, then what are you waiting for? Vamanos to South and Central America!
    • Whether you wanna trek the Inca trail, cruise the evolutionary wonderland of the Galapagos or salsa your way through the backstreets of Cuba, Latin America’s intoxicating rhythms and friendly locals will win you over with one beat of a Honduran drum.
    • So jump on a Geckos South or Central America trip and hit the peaks of Patagonia, bathe under a full moon in Ecuador, explore the cloud forests of Costa Rica, chill out in Colombia, climb Maya ruins in Guatemala and lose yourself to the passion and the paradise.
    • Sporting goods:
      The Aztects played a ball game known as tlachtli where the losers were sacrificed to the gods.
    • Arachnophobic much?
      About 20,000 different types of spiders are hiding underneath tables and above doorways in Costa Rica.
    • Hitching in Cuba:
      Hitchhiking in Cuba is legal, and government officials are actually obliged to give you a ride.
    • Ummmm?
      Costa Ricans call speed bumps ‘son muertos’ or ‘dead persons’.

    Overall Rating

    The trip over all exceeded my expectations, and I had such an amazing and memorable time. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't change a thing, and my tour leader went the extra mile to make the difference in my trip, especially that I was traveling solo.

    Ecuador, Peru & Bolivia

    Caroline - Australia, 14 Apr, 2013
    Overall Rating

    This tour is great, however, there were some places that I would have liked to stay longer and some places we could have skipped. Another day in Banos would have been preferred. Riobamba could definitely be skipped along with the devil nose train ride. Boring and not spectacular at all. Would have preferred to spend more days in the highlands in Peru.
