The Zimmerman family connecting in Cuba

The Zimmerman family connecting in Cuba
Considering travel to Cuba? Check out this trip review and travel tips with images from the Zimmerman family, 5x alumni travelers having been on Wildland Adventures to Costa Rica, Patagonia, India, Kenya and Peru. They asked us if we could arrange a short weekend-to-weekend adventure to Cuba with their adult son and his partner. They viewed this custom trip to Cuba as their first of more adventures to the island so they decided to stay together as a family in an apartment and focus exclusively on exploring Havana in depth. Jeff was specifically interested in pursuing his interest in drumming and everyone in the family wanted to learn all about Cuba. They also wanted to have time for independent exploration beyond the people-to-people guided connections we planned for them each day. Their trip review will give you a good idea of what to expect on our custom adventures to Cuba designed according to each...

New Adventures in Central America

    As Wildland Adventures Central America program director I'm excited to share what's new in our lineup for Central America this year. Take a look at where and why we added a few amazing trips for 2013.

What Makes the Caribbean so Special?

caribbean-costa-rica Discover Costa Rica's Caribbean Coast
The Caribbean tends to have much better/drier weather conditions from May to October than the Pacific Coast, just perfect for the rainforest-beach combo experience. The jungle is lush and everything is vibrant green as we do get some rain, but never too much to interfere with your adventure activities. If you are open minded and accepting of the unexpected (weather wise) you can enjoy rain a lot! There is nothing better than a downpour while you are walking in the forest (umbrellas free), or just watch the rain fall from your terrace/hammock. (Book or coconut in hand!) Being the low season you can usually find the best deals when searching for travel to Costa Rica . In the Caribbean there are so many things to do and ways to connect with the local people and nature, just take a look at our National Geographic award winning trip  Undiscovered Caribbean Adventure ....
