The 10-day tour is based in three places. Clients acclimatise in the Toledo district, at Copal Tree Lodge, with an infinity pool overlooking the canopy and a sustainable farm.

A scenic flight over the spectacular Great Blue Hole ends the trip on a high.

2. Citizen science in Colombia

Culture-packed plazas, palm-tickled shores and coffee plantations: Colombia has it all. Exodus Adventure Travels’ Best of Colombia itinerary begins in Medellín – once the home of drug lord Pablo Escobar, now an innovation hub.

The group then flies to the Caribbean coast to visit an Indigenous village. This November, a special ‘citizen science’ itinerary allows guests to take water samples at the Finca La Jorará ecohotel, which helps experts identify species living in the ecosystem.

South America is one of those places where visiting one country will leave clients wanting more – and Explore’s Best of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile tour will see travellers tick off a trio of bucket-list experiences.
