Central America is a special place in the Americas with a lot to offer. Its northern neighbour is Mexico and its southern one is Colombia. It’s pretty compact but extremely exciting! There are only 7 countries in Central America, as follows: Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Belize. Some people consider Mexico to be part of it, too, but that’s still open to discussion.
Some of the best places to visit in Central America are the active volcanoes in Guatemala, the turquoise waters of Belize, the surf towns of Nicaragua and the lush rainforests in Costa Rica. But not only! It’s really hard to only choose one to recommend on my list of Central America vacation spots, so my recommendation is to visit them ALL if you can, as each of them has a different vibe and advantages to offer. Central America is a place of history, culture, natural beauty and complete chill vibes! There are many places to travel in Central America and I’ll tell you about the best bits below.
