I've been travelling a while and am a big fan of overland travelling. Most important to me when travelling is not to have a plan set in stone, to listen to other travellers and to accept that things sometimes go wrong!

Todd Hey tachyon, why so? Is it more than the unique wildlife? Did you trek much? I suspect it's much less commercial than the Inca Trail.

vagabond The machu picchu trail is still quite difficult, no matter how many people do it each year. The elevation really gets to some people.

Suzy Hello Lauren. I am hopeful to do the Inca Trail in Feb next year. I will need to train a bit, I haven't done any hiking before this and I hear it is very strenuous with a lot of staircases

tachyon Todd: there's not much trekking to be done, as you're required to stay on very limited paths around the islands and have a guide with you at all times. But the wildlife is just so...Words can't really describe it. I'm planning to go back next year to do a liveaboard diving trip there (budget pending). It's certainly not cheap to get there or go on a cruise, but for anybody who has even the remotest interest in natural history, it's one of the most amazing places on the planet.

tachyon Also, I did the Inca Trail last year. It's not *that* bad. It's the altitude rather than the distance that will get you.

Meg The Inca Trail really isn't that bad as long as you take a few days to acclimatise to the altitude before you actually start hiking! By biggest tip would be blister plasters though! It doesn't matter how comfy your shoes are for normal hiking, that many staircases means blisters - prevention's better than having to hike 2 more days with blisters...

comehikewithmike Great tip! It's these things that turn an "okay" adventure into a "great" adventure.

Meg Hey, I'm already in Guatemala but am around for a few months. Not sure exactly where I'll be in Central America, but travelling alone and always good to meet up with new people!
