Central America is often described as a playground for adventurers, because of the sheer number of activities that are possible here. For water-lovers, there's diving in the cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico or in the second largest reef system in the world in Belize; surfing and kite-surfing in Costa Rica; or whale watching and kayaking in Baja California.
On land, there are volcano treks in Costa Rica, or even volcano boarding on the grey sand of Nicaragua or zip-wiring through the forest canopy in Costa Rica. For the more cultured visitors, there are endless sites worth visiting, including the pre-Aztec site of the Teotihuacan Pyramids near Mexico City, the ancient UNESCO protected site of Palenque or the ruins of Chichén Itzá, named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.
Whether you're a thrill seeker or a culture lover, there's something for everyone in Central America, so have a look at our top recommendations of things to do for more.
