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.

“Fantastic trip for me as it had all my favourite activities - wildlife and birdwatching, archaeology/history, and water-based activities eg. canoeing, boat and lagoon trips, swimming and particularly fantastic snorkelling. We were very unfortunate with the weather at Placencia so all boat trips were cancelled. Wilfred decided to leave Tikal earlier to see if we could get earlier ferry to Caye Caulker - we didn't manage this but still managed to organise a 2 -hour snorkelling trip on arrival, which was great, and partly made up for the lost trip at Placencia. I don't understand why you shortened the trip at Caye Caulker, because the snorkelling and other boating activities there are superb. I was very envious of the 3 people with the extra night there. I realise you changed it because of some criticism in the past - but nearly everyone on our trip went specifically to Belize, rather than any other Central American country because of the excellent snorkelling. It is also not that unusual to have a spell of adverse weather so you need more than 2 whole days on trip for possible trips. There are also lots of boat trip potential even if you are not interested in getting in the water.”

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.
