Flanked by two enormous continents, it's easy to miss out on Central America. But you definitely shouldn't. The small ribbon of land that joins the north and south Americas is beset with many jewels, from the lapis seas of the Riviera Maya, the emerald greens flora of the indigenous territories' tangled jungle or the deep tiger's eye of the Mayan and Incan ruins that speckle the region with ancient, eerie history. The best way to discover this modestly beautiful region is by uncovering its natural wonders. Hop into a traditional dugout canoe to explore the hidden coves and inlets of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, scuba into the deep of Belize's Blue Hole to uncover a wealth of marine life, or raise your gaze to the canopy as a troupe of howler monkeys swing overhead in Guatemala.

Beaches offer the best of both worlds: the Caribbean side proffers gentle waves and a chilled vibe, whereas the mighty Pacific boasts monster swells and fantastic surfing.

History buffs will love this region too, thanks to a culture that harks back 4,000 years. The Maya have an enduring presence from Mexico to Honduras, from the lost temples of Tikal rising majestically above the Guatemalan jungle to the other-worldly wonders such as Mexico's Chichen Itza or Tulum.
This is explosion of culture, nature and history practically guarantees a rewarding experience at every turn;Central America seems almost designed to open your eyes and develop your sense of wonder.


Central America with A&K
Central America punches well beyond its size in that there is so much packed into this isthmus that connects North with South America. A biodiversity hotspot that is approximately twice the size of the UK, the landscape of Central America is strikingly beautiful and varied from smouldering volcanoes to tropical rainforest, from stunning lakes, such as Atilan, to exquisite inlets and islands.


There is far more to Mexico than Riviera Maya and the beaches. Aztec, Mayan and Oltec sights vie for attention, whilst the jungles in the south and the whale watching in Baja California are amongst the best in the world. So too the Monarch Butterflies in February/March or hiking the Copper Canyon, a region which is seven times the size of the Grand Canyon.

Guatemala has everything from ruins to rainforests and colonial churches to Indian markets. Belize is renowned for the second largest barrier reef in the world and Costa Rica is famed for its natural beauty where you may see nesting turtles or the dazzling quetzal in the cloud forests.

Central America Travel with Abercrombie & Kent take you to the heart of this amazing region. Let our experts design your perfect Central American holiday.
