From luxury holidays in Costa Rica to Panama, and bespoke honeymoons in Mexico to Guatemala and Belize, travel in Central America is all about colour: Caribbean blue, jungle green, sunset orange, chilli red. Bubbling amber lava spills down volcanoes; delicate pink and yellow coral lie beneath turquoise seas; parrots, toucans and quetzals ruffle their multicoloured feathers, and emerald rainforest camouflages Mayan temples.
Then there’s the people, who paint their houses pink, blue and red, dress in an intricately-embroidered rainbow, and shop in markets where colours explode. A honeymoon or luxury adventure holiday to Mexico and Central America is a treat to the senses.
We’d hate you to miss it.
Belize makes a luxury holiday or honeymoon in Central America very easy. Pristine wildlife, rich forests, tropical beaches, ancient Mayan sites and the largest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere - all this with a friendly, English-speaking population, fabulous hotels and a laidback Caribbean vibe. Culture vultures may wish to combine a holiday in Belize with Guatemala or spend a few nights in Miami for a touch of glamour.
A Costa Rica luxury holiday or honeymoon is the ideal solution for anyone wanting to combine activity, adventure and relaxation on the beach. Home to exotic wildlife, cloud forests, volcanoes spitting lava, turtles laying eggs on beautiful beaches and to top it all, wonderfully friendly locals who can't wait to tell you about their country, usually in impeccable English, Costa Rica also works very well for family adventure holidays.
A heady cocktail of faded colonial splendour, salsa, communism, white sand beaches and a generous helping of Havana Club, Cuba as a holiday destination is something quite unique. From the thriving capital, Havana, where Art Deco architecture mingles with decaying colonial buildings, to the Northern Cayes, where powder-white sands are lapped by the turquoise Caribbean Sea, and all the time-warped colonial towns peppered throughout the island: it's safe to say there's nowhere in the world quite like Cuba.
Guatemala is Central America's cultural treasure chest, with arguably the most impressive of all Mayan sites, Tikal; lush tropical jungle a-plenty; a colonial jewel of a town in Antigua; and highlands dotted with tiny, colourful villages and markets. Stay in a hacienda hideaway in the rainforest or one of Guatemala's charming, boutique hotels for a luxury holiday, honeymoon or adventure break full of vivid colour and captivating culture. If you're a sucker for scenery, Lake Atitlan, framed by volcanic peaks is the perfect addition to any Guatemala holiday itinerary.
A country rich in lush tropical rainforest with a spectacular coastline along the emerald Caribbean Sea, Honduras has plenty going for it as an exotic luxury holiday destination with adventure sports in steamy jungles; the Paris of Mayan sites, Copan; the spectacular Pico Bonito National Park; and some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world in the Bay Islands. Luxury adventure holidays in Honduras work well combined with neighbouring Guatemala.
Mexico sizzles with energy, from the madness of Mexico City to magnificent Mayan and Aztec temples. Not only has Mexico some of the continent's best luxury hotels, the country is also a visual treat with powdery white sand beaches, bustling local markets, wedding cake churches, buildings painted in lurid colours that could only work in Mexico, vertigo-inducing canyons and tropical forests. We challenge you not to fall in love with a luxury holiday here.
A luxury holiday or adventure tour in undiscovered Nicaragua offers stunning landscapes, outdoor activities and cultural treasures. Volcanoes emerging from lakes, mountains, rainforest, coral reefs, mangroves – and no less than 78 national parks, bursting with flora and wildlife not seen outside of Central America – plus fascinating history, culture and countless activities, make Nicaragua a really exciting, up and coming travel destination. Oh and its still pretty cheap, with very few tourists. Watch this space.
While Panama is best known for its canal, the country offers much more than an engineering feat. Head into tropical rainforest for some of the best birdwatching on the continent, explore gorgeous archipelagos in the Caribbean and enjoy spectacular diving and snorkelling, or relax at a beautiful luxury hotel on a Pacific coast beach. A luxury holiday in Panama combines easily with many other Latin American destinations so is a great stop-off for some quality rest and relaxation.
