Welcome to the new blog of Central America Overland Expedition!

Posted: May 12, 2012 by Central America Overland Expeditions in Expedition/Travel

Please allow me to introduce our company to you: Central America Overland Expeditions. We are a relatively small, new company entering the Expedition Travel arena. We specialize in Overland Expedition travel, via Land Rover Discovery & Toyota  Land Cruiser to Central and Southern Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. An average tour with clients will run five to seven days though Rain Forrest/Jungles, Mayan Ruins, Colonial Towns, and the Atlantic and Pacific coast of Central America. Typically our clients will be picked up at an Airport, at which time they will spend the next several days with us seeing Central America in a way that the average tourist is not able or would not ordinarily have access to. Our clients are the adventurous type and will not mind spending a few nights in a roof top tent, hotel/hostels, as well as lodging with a local village host families. They will also be prime candidates to return home and outfit their vehicles, and tell their friends/club members about the products they experienced on the expedition.  Although we are small and new, we bring an immeasurable amount of expedition experience.

Owners Profile:            Scott Woodhams, Scott has made numerous cross-country trips including Augusta Georgia to Anchorage Alaska via the rugged Alaskan Highway, as well as many other long-range driving excursion throughout North & South America. He is an avid 4×4 enthusiast and club member with a wealth of knowledge modifying, maintaining, improving and servicing expedition/off-road vehicles. He currently owns and operates a 2004 Land Rover Discovery 2 outfitted for extensive overland use.

We are seeking strategic partners to provide sponsorship. Currently we have a need for new expedition items that will be used for research, testing, and reliability. We will be reporting the real world reliability of these products in everyday use. All of  the following products will be used exclusively by our company/staff  on our expedition vehicles. We will be using Land Rover Discovery’s I & II  1994- 2004 models exclusively, along with Toyota Land Cruiser. These vehicles have recently completed a full service to include all fluid changes, brake service, drive shaft service, head gasket replacement and all other known issues that could potentially become a problem. At this time we are looking for sponsorship of the following items :

We will be testing, analyzing , & evaluating equipment. We will promptly post all relevant advertising on our websites, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, News Print media, and word of mouth. Additionally we will proudly display your marketing/decal on our vehicles, as well as adding a link to all of our web media. Any and all items will be considered and appreciated. Our sponsors will be notified often about the condition, operation and ease of use and any recommendation for improvements/ modifications.  We will be departing Augusta, Georgia the first part of June 2012 and traveling through September 2012. During this 90+ day shake down we will travel throughout Mexico, Belize, Honduras and Guatemala. On this trip, we will be conducting a feasibility study including research and surveying destinations for our clients.

  1. Hello guys!
    My name is Esteban and I’m from Costa Rica. I live in Tucson, Arizona. I’m very excited to see that you guys are going to cross Central America. I’ve been thinking of starting a project to build a Jeep to drive to Costa Rica, continuing to Panama and ship back the jeep and fly home. This is a long term project but I think I can make it with my father-in-law’s help. He has experience in camping, going on road trips and building customized Jeeps. Here is his facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/KalaberCreations.

    I’ll be following you guys to have an idea of what to expect if I can ever do the same.
    I wish you the best, a safe trip and please keep us posted about it. Just out of curiosity, which places are you guys planning to visit in Costa Rica?

    Esteban S.
