In four days you could attempt to build the world’s largest stack of cards at home. But if it all comes falling down, an Inca Trail hike to the mysterious land of Machu Picchu takes just as long. Not to mention seeing baby sea turtles crawl for the first time in Tortuguero… *sobs*

  • First time doing a Contiki tour and can't wait to book my next one! The Lava Line was amazing. Our trip manager was very knowledgeable and made our journey one never to forget. The itinerary was well designed yet flexible enough to make the trip our own. The add-ons were awesome and not expensive. This is a must do trip if you love adventure!
