Meet The Monsooners Of Central America

by | Jun 3, 2013 | Introductions | 0 comments

Here’s to celebrating the end of my 3rd year of medical school: 4 countries and 9 cities for less than $1100 *all-inclusive* of flights, transportation, lodging and food at $20/day for 9 days from June 22nd – June 30th.

From spelunking impressive Mayan ruins to horseback riding on the beach to national parks to the height of human engineering to witnessing National Geographic’s “most beautiful sunset in the world”, this trip caters to all types of backpackers, adventurers, history buffs, archaeologist wannabes, animal lovers, and beach bums. Spots are still open, so leave a comment if you’re interested!
