Today, Central America is divided into seven unique countries. But before it was what it is now, the land was ruled by the Incas, Mayans, and Aztecs, some of the most notable empires in human history.
In our opinion, there is no better way to learn about Central America than by visiting the museums and ruins scattered throughout Guatemala, Honduras, and Belize.
When we think of the top most beautiful places we’ve visited, Central America is in our top three. With local tours, you can experience lush jungles, breathtaking fauna and flora, and so much more.
If you get bored of being on land or exploring jungles, take a trip to one of the local beaches. The water is perfect for sunning, swimming, and surfing and the views are perfect for epic vacation photos.
Trying to describe Central American culture would be impossible. The region has a diverse history and an even more vivid present that is ever-changing.
But you can immerse yourself in the culture as we did. You can participate and learn about all the bright ancestral history and the religious, civic, and popular festivities. The vivid culture will quickly swallow you up and show you just how amazing this region is.
The last highlight has to be the amazing food. Again, the diversity of this region becomes clear when exploring the cuisine.
Here you can enjoy a mix of indigenous, Spanish, and African cuisine and their local variations. Try everything you can and remember to add a delicious local drink for good measure.
