Whether you’re in search of Maya ruins, beaches lapped by bright seas, rare birdlife or Baroque relics, Central America offers you a real depth and array of experiences. And though Central American countries may seem hard to pick and choose against at first, our specialists know that each country has its own particular marvels — such as Costa Rica’s out-of-the-way, wildlife-rich Osa Peninsula, Belize’s Blue Hole dive site, and Mexico’s chili-infused chocolate mole sauce.
Many of our specialists have lived or worked (often as guides) in this part of the world, and they return frequently to keep abreast of new developments. They’ll use all this knowledge to create your bespoke Central America tour. They’d also encourage you to include overlooked (but often just as rewarding) countries in your vacation to Central America, such as Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala or Panama.
