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.

Past Travellers' Ratings & Comments
The Ark Archipelago - Central Islands
terrance - Canada, 25 May, 2013
The landings and the snorkeling were great. You never tired of the animals or the birds. If at all with dubious 'sea legs', bring appropriate medication.
The Track to Inca City
Alex - Australia, 10 Apr, 2013
The experience was always going to be amazing, and it was!! but the hotel to begin and end the trip was below our expectations. Hotel Leonards was more a hostel style lodging which we understand maybe necessary for keeping costs down, but had we been aware of the condition and style of rooms we would have been happy to pay extra for something more comfortable. It was cold, damp and cramped. Being over 6ft 6 tall the beds were to small and uncomfortable for myself, and with little room i was unable to put the mattress on the floor to stretch out. had i of been aware of this prior i would have made some alternative arrangements.
