Central America: Rainforests, Ruins, Jungle thickets and black-sand shores

Central America is a region of the Americas. It is bordered by Mexico to the north, Colombia to the southeast, the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south.

From tropical cloud forests alive with jungle melodies to vast freshwater lakes and active volcanoes, this pocket of Central America is a pure, unrefined paradise. Relaxing beneath shaggy palms on a dark-sand beach in El Cuco, or spotting colourful birds perched on the colonial facades of Suchitoto.

Standing in the shadow of mighty Arenal Volcano or spotting sloths among the canopy of Monteverde, this 17-day Central American journey through Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica is perfect for those who like their Lonely Planet Experience ‘la forma natural’ (the natural way).

Escape the resorts and discover something extraordinary in Central America. Experience mighty ruins, clear Caribbean waters, Pacific waves, rainforests, and breathtaking scenery during your bespoke journey in Central America.

Explore indigenous Mayan villages and meet locals for an immersive experience that few travellers get to know. While you’re free to choose your own journey, your accommodation and transportation are included.
