A Nature Lover's Dream
Why we love Central America: The Adventures and Wildlife (and kudos for the pioneering efforts on conservation and sustainability!).
On a Costa Rica itinerary, you can visit the rain forest, beach and volcano in a single trip due to its concentrated size and incredible biodiversity. Adventures such as waterfall rappelling, surfing, hiking the misty cloud-forests, whitewater rafting and zip-lining through the rain forest canopy are abundant. A number of wildlife species can be discovered - squirrel, howler and white-faced Capuchin monkeys, two and three-toed sloths, colorful bird life like scarlet macaws and toucans, dart frogs, butterflies and more.
Belize remains relatively uncrowded and relaxed, with mountains to explore, lush jungles and beautiful beaches. With the Belizean Barrier Reef offshore, there is beautiful coral diving and snorkeling, not to mention the famous Blue Hole, or just enjoying beach life in the sunny islands and sandy cays.
Panama is another diverse destination with its capital city, the infamous engineering feat of the Panama Canal plus the unique indigenous tribes and cultures, gorgeous Panamanian forests and the sunny islands of Bocsa del Toro on the Caribbean coast.
