Read my Central America travel blog. It includes my experiences and tips in Latin American region.
At the end of 2015, I travelled through Central America. Though I have been in Costa Rica and Panama before, this time I spent about two months and covered the remaining countries.
Central America is made of up seven countries: Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. The region is bordered by Mexico in the northwest, Colombia in the southeast, the Pacific Ocean in the west, and the Caribbean Sea in the east.
With the exception of Costa Rica and Panama, Central America is relatively a cheap place to travel. But you can still find cheap ways to travel through Costa Rica and Panama.
A benefit of travelling through Central America is that all the countries speak Spanish. So, you only have one language to worry about in this region. Belize’s official language is English, but several locals speak Spanish or a creole version of it.
I hope you enjoy my Central America travel blog below.
