Taking a trip to Central America is one of the most interesting travelling experiences one can have. The region acts as a land bridge between Mexico and South America and is surrounded by the Pacific and Atlantic oceans on either side. The seven different countries that makeup Central America — Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua — offer tropical paradise that is waiting to be rediscovered again and again.

  • Jamie McGinnis
“I cannot say enough about Oldemar and his team. We bought our plane tickets and thats it! They handled everything else for 15 days!!! We visited Tamarindo, Monteverde, La Fortuna, Arenal, Tortuguero, Puerto Viejo and San Jose. We were there in rainy season, and had private van transfers to each location. Oldemar, Pablo, and Oscar were especially amazing Costa Ricans, and we met countless others. We had dozens of transfers, adventure boat rides, excursions, day and night hikes, horseback rides to waterfalls, nature hikes, zip lines, hanging bridges, and a special late night trip to watch the giant sea turtles lay their eggs. Amazing!!! CRs are very proud that their teachers and professors are their army, since theyve had no military in over 70 years. Education and health care are free. They have between 3-6% of the worlds biodiversity - birds, snakes, frogs, monkeys, sloths, and so many more. Pay attention that the rainy season means it rains (sometimes HARD) and is very humid! What a wonderful trip!! You can trust this company 1000%”
The tour operator responded

Central America - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

There are very few areas on the planet that have such a broad range of biodiversity available including rainforests, mountain ranges with steamy volcanoes, and some of the best surfing beaches to catch a wave. With all this in mind, planning a tour to Central America might not be the easiest thing to do! However, we’ve narrowed down the best highlights, so you know where to focus your time and attention. 

Tour Highlights

  • If you’re headed to Central America seeing the different Mayan pyramids, cave dwellings, and different carvings on mountains and walls make some really great Instagrammable moments. The different Mayan ruins run all across Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador and make for very affordable destinations.
  • There are many different active and dormant volcanoes spread across Central American. Some of the most famous include the current active Pacaya volcano in Guatemala which regularly still spews smoke. Poas in Costa Rica is also famous among backpackers with its mile-long crater lake as well as many smaller geothermal lakes and springs.
  • For just over 100 years now the Panama Canal has connected the middle of the Americas with a canal spreading over five miles of land using three different locks including the Miguel Pedro and Miraflores Locks on the Pacific side and the Gatun Locks on the Atlantic gulf side. We suggest visiting the Miraflores Locks to see them in action.

Travel Tips

  • Typically December to April is the dry season, so we suggest going during that time so you don’t get rained out on all your activities.
  • While there is quite a bit of internal conflict between the countries as their founding and history are all unique and different, each country is very receptive to tourists and it’s considered a perfect region to go backpacking through.
  • While malaria is said to be a risk in Central America, it is a very low risk and mostly found in a small region within Costa Rica. It is advised to ensure you check each local region’s suggested vaccines at least 8 weeks prior to visiting.
