Top places to visit in Central America

  • City of the Sun
    One of the most iconic locations to visit Mayan ruins is Tulum, which is an ancient Mayan city in Mexico.
  • The Arenal Volcano
    This impressive volcano towers over the north-west region of Costa Rica. You can go hiking, waterfall rappling or take a dip in the hot springs of the national park surrounding it.
  • Lake Nicaragua
    The biggest lake in Central America and where you can take some time out and go bull shark spotting - they grow up to 11 feet in length!
  • Bay Islands of Honduras
    Soak up the laid-back vibes of the Bay Islands - go diving and snorkelling, or just chill out listening to reggae music and wandering the sandy streets.
  • The Hummingbird Highway
    Get your camera out, because this stretch of highway hugs the Maya Mountains, passes through jungles and is host to numerous exciting stop off points for caving and swimming.
  • Tikal
    Another ancient Mayan city, but this time located deep in the jungle of Guatemala. Not only will you visit awe inspiring ruins, you'll also be walking through an incredible rainforest.
