With so much to explore, this vast region of the world takes time and planning to travel through – so, why not make things easier with a few friends and join one of these TRIPS by Culture Trip rather than traveling solo? From the high mountains of the Andes to the wilderness of Patagonia, here are the best Central and South America group trips out there for you to experience.
1 . Pura Vida: A Jungle Safari of Costa Rica
In Costa Rica, you’ll be quick to understand the meaning of “Pura Vida”. It’s the Costa Rican way of life, which to some means the “good life” – while to others, it’s simply a way of life. On this nine-day TRIPS by Culture Trip group tour, you’ll have time to acquaint yourself with the concept of Pura Vida as you start the journey by sipping freshly brewed coffee in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano – before heading off on a jungle safari in search of sloths and jaguars. Zipline through the cloud forests of Monteverde and finish the tour with surfing and yoga sessions on the beaches of Tamarindo.

Looking for an off-the-beaten-track adventure? One of the best places to travel in South America is Colombia.

3 . Animal Kingdom: Embrace the Biodiversity of the Galápagos
One of the most beautiful places in South America is the Galapagos Islands, where you can find nature like nowhere else in the world. This five-day TRIPS by Culture Trip group tour starts when you arrive in Santa Cruz – where you’ll snorkel in the Itabaca Channel before visiting a giant tortoise preserve. Set off with a local naturalist to uninhabited islands to discover iguanas, finches and all the unique species that inspired Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection. The tour ends on San Cristobal Island – where you’ll walk through lava fields and snorkel with sea lions – before making the journey back across the Pacific Ocean to mainland Ecuador.

4 . Ancient Temples and Wild Cenotes on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula
The Yucatan Peninsula is more culturally aligned with Central America than it is with North America – the Yucatan has a rich Mayan history that you’ll uncover on this nine-day TRIPS by Culture Trip group tour. Start with cocktails on the beaches of Holbox before you delve into local history, but you’ll soon be swimming in wild cenotes and staring in awe at the temples of Chichen Itza and Coban. There’s time to learn how to cook like a Yucatec, visit museums and markets in Merida and have one last night out in Tulum before saying your farewells to your newfound group of friends.
