South America has countless opportunity to experience some of the most incredible natural wonders on earth, from the northernmost point of Punta Gallinas to the southernmost point of Cape Horn.Visitors can expect abundant encounters with nature when exploring the amazing natural wonders of Central America.
Since the construction of the renowned Panama Canal in 1914, which connects the Pacific and the Caribbean, Panama has been at the centre of global shipping.
The country itself (one of the most developed in the area) has benefited from its significance in international trade. And as flights from the US have gotten cheaper and more Americans are starting to retire here, Panama has also recently grown to be a popular tourist destination.
One of my favourite nations in the world is Costa Rica. It was the first country I ever visited and the one that gave me the travel bug.
Costa Rica is currently one of the most well-liked travel destinations in Central America. Both luxury and budget travellers as well as expats enjoy it. Despite being on the more expensive end of the price spectrum for the area, it’s still a fantastic country to visit and is still reasonably priced.
Honduras has a lot to offer low-cost travellers, including biodiverse jungles, historic Mayan ruins, and sizable national parks teeming with wildlife. There is a tonne to do, and it is also one of the least expensive nations in Central America.
Sadly, because of its violent past, it frequently gets overlooked in favour of more upscale Central American hotspots.
Today, Honduras is much safer and favoured by adventurous backpackers and expats seeking to venture off the beaten path. Honduras has some of the finest value in the region with top-notch diving, a low cost of living, and exceptional weather.
Few places on Earth can compare to Belize’s rich natural beauty, despite its modest size (less than 9,000 square miles, or about the size of the state of Massachusetts). The stunning Mayan ruins dotting the country’s lush rainforests contrast with the turquoise and coral tones of the barrier reef. Not only is Belize’s geography diverse, but so are its history, culture, and people.
There is much more to Mexico than simply its opulent resorts, even though the majority of tourists travel there for its major tourist destinations like Tulum, Cabo, Cancun, or Cozumel.
Now, I’ll be upfront: I didn’t go to Mexico until much later.
But as soon as I did, I became enamoured with it. Mexico is a fantastic travel destination with a fascinating history, delectable cuisine, and welcoming locals.
The Mayan heartland of Central America is Guatemala. Guatemala is a diverse and lovely country that is ideal for low-cost travel. It is home to historical monuments from antiquity and spectacular ruins, as well as deep jungles, vibrant architecture, bustling marketplaces, and towering volcanoes.
Adventuresome travellers have the opportunity to venture off the main path and discover unspoiled landscapes for a fraction of the price they would spend elsewhere thanks to the rough mountains and jungles. And the historical sites, including the spectacular Tikal, an old Mayan metropolis and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are underappreciated and a must-see for history aficionados.
