Explore five surprising examples of why you need to try group travel on your next trip.
By Tyler Anneliese Moselle
The last thing people envision during trip planning is joining a group of strangers.
Lounging in one-of-a-kind accommodations, tracking flight prices, scrolling through amazing cultural sights, never-before eaten foods, and climbing trails through unknown terrain… with people you’ve never met?
But here’s the scoop on what you’ve been missing out on group travel:
1. Join the pack! You’ll make new friends and lifelong connections.
When you mix an international adventure with a curious group of people from all different backgrounds, you encounter unparalleled, valuable moments.
Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime moment on a Shaman walk to Cusco temples or rolling cigars together in Cuba could spell lifelong bonds
“One thing that I've learned from traveling to different places is that music unites us all. In difficult times or situations, music can bring people together and make them feel better.” -@ktmacaroni on our January trip to Cuba
2. Expand your perspective and skills.
Some travelers—like this writer and traveler Jen Han, love to plan their own adventures.
Han shares — “Usually I like to plan my own travel, but for Cuba, we decided that that going with an experienced guide was the best option. Andrew and his team are fantastic—so fun and knowledgeable. We had the most incredible trip!”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
From our well-traveled team to our international tour guides, you’ll experience a curated trip from a locals’ perspective. Plus you can have your own personal AMA: Ask Andrew Anything!
Through our international community of farmers, chefs, and artisans, you can take a local’s deeper dive into global food, beverages, and crafts.
Once you’re Coast to Costa family, you’ll never come back home the same!
3. Get that photo.
You don’t have to be shy when you want that travel photo of your dreams.
From llama cameos on Machu Picchu to enjoying classic cocktails against beautiful architectural backdrops in Havana: never fear.
You can stay present in the moment without regretting not capturing that perfect moment.
