Central America

Being the bridge between North and South America, Central America is comprised of seven tropical countries, namely: Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama. It is much easier to travel by bus than plane in this region. English is widely used in this region. The money used is the U.S dollar. It is wise to bring your own cash, but keep yourself safe as crime is high especially in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

The Tica Bus is highly recommended if you want to go cross-country. You can visit the Cloud Forest in Panama which is lined with many hotels you can stay in. National Parks are abundant, so pay them a visit and appreciate the rare flora and fauna found here. If you enjoy history, you should not miss the ancient Maya ruins located in El Salvador, Belize, Honduras and Guatemala. If you want to be one with nature, Lake Atitlan in Guatemala and its surrounding volcanoes is said to be the most scenic volcanic lake in the world. Culture speaks for itself in Central America, and it is best captured when you go see these treasures with your own eyes.
