7 Amazing Experiences in Central America
Packed with some of the most jaw-dropping natural sights around, as well as a huge variety of different cultures to explore, Central America provides visitors with an experience like no other. Of course, we’re talking about a huge part of the world here, so it’s worth doing your research, to ensure you don’t miss out on the good stuff!
Whilst this is by no means and exhaustive list, let’s check out 7 amazing experiences in Central America that you should be putting on your bucket list right now!
Diving in Belize
The Great Blue Hole is a huge sinkhole which was brought to fame in 1971 by Jacques Cousteau, the explorer. It is certainly one of the best spots in the world for scuba diving, and you’ll see all manner of different marine life, including reef sharks. If the Great Barrier Reef is a little off your radar, this Central American alternative will show you the best of the underwater world.
Trekking in Guatemala
It will take around three days to trek from Xela, over the Guatemalan highlights to Lake Atitlan, but it is certainly a fanatic way to score some seriously envious photographs.
Zip-lining in Costa Rica
There are countless companies which provide you with zip lining fun, but look towards the parks which are packed with natural sights, such as Manuel Antonio National Park and the iconic Arenal Volcano National Park.
Visit the Mayan Ruins in Mexico
It’s a great idea to read up a little beforehand, so you know what you’re looking at, with those huge pyramids in front of you. Check out Tikal’s Temple of the Jaguar, and Tulum’s City of the Sun. Of course, most people would venture to Mexico, combining it with a beach break, but the two sites are actually quite close to each other. This means visiting both sites is certainly very do-able!
See Lake Nicaragua's Bull Sharks
Whitewater Rafting in Costa Rica
Again, there are countless companies which offer you this experience, so shop around for the best one.
See Baja California's Whales
The grey whales in particular are particularly friendly and will usually swim quite close to boats out on the waters for whale watching expeditions. This is whale watching like nowhere else on earth!
