Plan them properly and family holidays in Central America can be among the very best you ever have. The reason(s)? An almost perfect blend of beautiful beaches, watersports, adventurous activities, cultural (but not too cultural) curiosities, family-friendly accommodation and great weather in some of the key school holidays. So, what might the highlights be on a family holiday in Central America? Exhibit A would most likely be Mexico, and the Yucatan Peninsula in particular. You can hang out on wonderful beaches, snorkel (or older children can dive), see manatees in the wild, explore cave systems,
wander around colonial towns, learn to cook classic Mexican dishes and - arguably best of all - visit spectacular Mayan cities. Another classic destination for Central America family holidays is Costa Rica. No Mayan civilisation here, but wildlife that is second to none in a country with unparalleled biodiversity. You and the brood can spot (and hear) howler monkeys, watch turtles come ashore to lay their eggs, white water raft, whizz on zip lines through the rainforest canopy and generally monkey around in this verdant adventure playground. Elsewhere, Belize is the biz for snorkelling and swimming off coral cayes (islands), and Guatemala offers an intriguing slice of indigenous life, while Nicaragua might just be the next big thing for family holidays to Central America.
