TRAVELLING TO Central America

Most Australians travelling to Central America visit more than one country on their holiday, crossing borders to get a true taste for the diversity this destination has to offer.

Our most popular tours include: Costa Rica & Panama, Cuba, and Mexico

Where to start: There are numerous gateways in Central America, the most common for Australians being Panama City, San Jose and Mexico City. From there, it will depend on what your style of travel is as to where you want to go.

Central America is one of the world’s most extraordinary destinations and a tour can offer the perfect blend of culture, history, nature and tradition.

What’s it like? While Mexico is often described as Central America’s hub of history and culture, some of its neighbours also offer an impressive array of archaeological sites. Guatemala, for instance, impresses with its colour, vibrancy, volcanoes and a multitude of historic sites.

Cuba is one of Central America’s most iconic destinations with its vintage cars, colonial settlements, traditional haciendas and postcard perfect stretches of white sand and turquoise waters.

To see some of the world’s most renowned beaches,  Mexico’s Cancun and Tulum as well as Cuba and its surrounding islands, are perfect places for beach hopping.

For the nature and wildlife enthusiast, Costa Rica & Panama are popular choices and can show you the road less travelled and introduce you to forested mountains, giant lakes, and some of Central America’s unique wildlife species.

For food lovers, a gastronomic experience awaits with Central America boasting some of the world’s most delicious cuisines.
