Gorgeous Holidays to Central America

Despite Central America being a relatively small region of the world, made up of just seven countries, it’s clear here that looks can very much be deceiving! With the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west, nowhere here is further than 200km from the water which means you’ve a huge array of beaches to enjoy, and gorgeous ones at that. As well as beautiful beaches, you’ll find yourself surrounded by lush rainforests, charismatic colonial towns, cloud-shrouded volcanoes, unbelievable wildlife and a tropical climate that moves to the beats of salsa, calypso and reggae. Home to the Mayan civilisations and with Spanish as its dominant language (spoken in six out of the seven countries), Central America might seem somewhat unfamiliar, but it has never been better to get yourself introduced.

Unforgettable memories aplenty are a guarantee on a trip to Central America. Just a small sample of the incredible amount of experiences you can enjoy in this amazing region of the world are;

  • Explore the depths of the jungle on your search for Tikal.
  • Hike to hidden waterfalls scattered throughout Ruta de las Flores, El Salvador.
  • Cave tube in Cave’s Branch and stand in awe at the size of the caverns inside St. Herman’s Cave, Belize.
  • Visit one of the world’s greatest engineering marvels with a day trip to the 80km long Panama Canal.
  • Get lost in the literal tropical paradise of Costa Rica. An adventure in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is an absolute must!  
  • Dance the night away or immerse yourself in history and culture in León, Nicaragua.
  • Journey to the postcard perfect twin volcanic peaks of Isla de Ometepe.
  • Snorkel the second largest barrier reef in the world, Mesoamerican Reef.

The ‘Gringo Trail’

If you’re looking to explore as much of Central America as possible in one trip then you should certainly consider doing the Gringo Trail. This is a favourite route to take when it comes to exploring the seven stunning countries that form this region of the world. Making your way from Mexico to Belize, you’ll travel mainly along the Pan-American Highway through Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and into Panama. Of course throughout the journey you’ll be able to wonder through more remote parts should you choose such as the Caribbean sides of Honduras and Nicaragua which are both much less developed than the Pacific side but just as exciting to visit. A minimum amount of time we would suggest to do a trip like this would be six weeks to allow yourself close to a week in each country and to ensure you get fully accustomed to the Central American way of life.

Enquire today and our travel consultants can talk with you about visiting individual countries in this region along with organising an epic adventure on the Gringo Trail.
