Central America

Last updated: 1 April 2018
Central America is comprised of seven countries located between Mexico and South America. Surrounded by the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the shorelines are full of coral reefs filled with colorful tropical fish. The warm, crystal clear seawater draws surfers and divers throughout the year. Belize has the second largest coral reef in the world.

The rainforests hide the mystic ruins of four-thousand-year-old Mayan civilisations.  Explore Mayan archaeological sites in Costa Rica, El Salvador or Honduras, and visit the many museums. They also carry fine artefacts of these past civilisations. See the ruins of Spanish forts, and enjoy spicy, delicious Mexican cuisine.
