Central America Travel Guide

Central America's map Perhaps one of the areas that saw the biggest increases in tourism and investments in the travel industry over the past decade, Central America is by far the most popular destination for North Americans (and increasingly popular with Europeans as well). We decided to write up a short Central American travel guide to keep you up to date on what's worth visiting.

Despite being a small region, squashed between the two giant blocks of the American continents to the North and South, Central America is an area filled with culture, diversity and bustling with life. With a number of 8 countries, packed tightly into just 500 thousand square miles, the region is becoming more and more advanced and its tremendous touristic potential is increasingly higher, as technology meets the pristine natural habitats of Mexico, Costa Rica or Nicaragua.

Mexico stands out from the crowd a bit, not just because it's the largest country in the area, but also because it's the country with a high touristic value, especially for residents of the United States. Cancun for example is a paradise resort and has become one of the most popular travel destinations for Northern Americans.

Not to be outdone, other Central American countries offer various other attractions, such as Panama's Parara Puru, where you can visit an authentic village of the Embera Indians, Guatemala's magnificent Pacaya Volcano or if you're feeling adventurous, you can even try an incredible rafting session on the Pacuare River in San Jose.

Regardless of where you intend to go to, we have some incredible Central American travel deals for you, ranging from all inclusive vacation packages to hotel deals, local car rentals and of course, the pièce de résistance, cheap flight deals.
