Central America Adventure Vacations
1. Visit an Archeological Site
No trip to Belize is complete without visiting Xunantunich, one of the most famous Mayan ruins in Belize. To get to Xunantunich, you’ll need to take a hand cranked ferry across the Mopan River, before hiking one mile to the top of a parking lot. For the best views, climb to the top of the El Castillo.
2. Visit a Sloth Sanctuary
If you’re a wildlife lover, you may be interested in visiting the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica, where you’ll be able to view sloths in their natural habitat. Back in the sanctuaries main buildings, you’ll also get to see baby sloths in the sanctuary’s nursery.
3. Take a Soak in a Relaxing Hot Spring
Should you visit Guatemala, make sure to visit the Kawilal Hot Springs, which are naturally heated by the nearby Pacaya Volcano.
4. Take a Tour of the World Famous, Panama Canal
The Panama Canal is arguably one of the world’s most successful engineering projects and is well worth visiting. As part of your tour, you’ll get a chance to cruise down the Panama Canal and experience what it’s like to travel through the Miraflores Locks. A process which includes having your ship raised a staggering 54 feet.
No matter which Central American nation you visit, make sure to visit a local market in order to sample local foods such as freshly fried empanadas and to pick up souvenirs for your friends and family back home. One example of a popular Central American market is the San Ignacio market in Belize, which is a sprawling, open air market.
While Central America offers a variety of world class beach front hotels, you’ll also have the opportunity to stay in a rainforest lodge, nestled amongst the treetops. As an example, if you visit Costa Rica, you may be interested in staying at the Selva Verde Lodge and Rainforest Reserve, a luxury eco-lodge, which promotes sustainable tourism.
So if you’re an adventurer looking for your next region to explore, it’s well worth researching Central America further, as it offers enough adventures to keep you busy for several weeks!
