The wild and beautiful stretch of Central America , best known for its Mayan heritage and archaeological sites, also conceals a number of remarkable natural wonders.
Mexico is home to a number of natural wonders including Copper Canyon, Cozumel Island, the idyllic Isla Holbox and the Pena de Bernal, the third tallest monolith in the world.
In Costa Rica look out for the Arenal Volcano, Chirripo Mountain, the Light Blue River in the Tenorio Volcano National Park, cloud forest in the Monteverde Reserve, the Poas Volcano National Park and the Tortuguero Canals in Tortuguero National Park.
Elsewhere, look out for the Blue Hole National Park, Glover's Reef and Half Moon Cay Beach in Belize; the Jeanette Kawas National Park and Pico Bonito National Park on Honduras and the Bocas del Toro archipelago, Chiriqui Highlands and Darien National Park in Panama.
These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your natural world holiday in Central America by adding a city stay, beach holiday or wildlife holiday to your itinerary; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
