Central America Tours: Explore the New World's Eden
This relatively slender swath of land is rich with vibrant life, eco-systems, and culture that give the countries a uniquely Central American feel.
The countries included under the umbrella of Central America are Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Caribbean Sea to the east, these regions are surrounded with pristine beaches, virgin rain forests, and thousands of exotic species. Quite simply, this part of the world is brimming with life and offers its tourists experiences that cannot be had anywhere else on Earth.
There are many natural wonders to marvel at while touring through
Central America. These include the Cloud Forests in Honduras and Panama,
the volcanic Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, as well as the sand and surf
that stretch along the coasts. Lake Atitlan, and the volcanoes
surrounding it, have actually been called one of the most beautiful
places on Earth, making it a must see for any travelers in the region.
In addition to the ecological hot spots, the ancient Mayan ruins
scattered across Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador provide
breath-taking views and insight into the ancient culture. For colonial
history, just venture into one of the many colonial towns for beautiful
examples of architecture from the period.
Tourists flock to this part of the world hoping to find peace and relaxation away from modern bustling city life. This is easily achieved on the shores of the Atlantic or Caribbean, but for those who desire a little adventure that is also easily discovered within the sub-continent. There is always some adventure to be had, whether it is flying through the forest’s canopy on a zipline or scuba diving in the sea.

These countries, having once been a part of Spain’s kingdom, maintain some distinctly Spanish flavor. The food, customs, and language are all influenced by the Spaniards, but this is just one of the many cultural influences on the region. The Caribbean and British influences are also noticeable. Pre-Columbian peoples, such as the Aztecs and Mayans, also thrived in the area and continue to have some impact on the modern culture. The diversity of the Central American past has contributed greatly to the modern lifestyle of the region. Costa Rica tours have long been a favorite of U.S. travelers because it is fairly inexpensive to fly there, and there is so much to see and do. Panama tours are growing in popularity over the past few years.
