Adventure holidays in Central America
Central America is a wild and varied region, with landscapes and terrain that is ideally suited to activity and adventure holidays.
Further south venture into the rainforests on the Ruta Maya, kayak along the coast of Belize and keep an eye out for varied wildlife or explore the central highlands and volcanoes of Guatemala on foot.
Costa Rica is the prime draw for adventure and activity in the region though; try drifting down a river or white water rafting, climb to the forest canopy to tackle a high-level walkway then rush back to earth on a zip line; hike around the Arenal volcano or cycle coast to coast.
These options are just a small selection of what it is possible to do in Central America; talk to a destination specialist to tailor-make your trip to your personal preferences.
