Lush tropical landscapes, pristine beaches, cities bursting with cultural riches… Central America packs a punch despite its small size. Of the region’s seven countries, Costa Rica is undoubtedly the most popular to visit, thanks to its stunning topography (active volcanoes, cloud forests, etc.) and surf-ready beaches. The country is also home to numerous home-run beach resorts. Further north, Guatemala is another favorite for a Central America vacation, with its equally gorgeous landscapes and Spanish colonial city of Antigua. And just next door, Belize beckons travelers thanks to its outstanding biodiversity and coral reefs.

With its spectacular natural landscapes and proximity to the US, Central America provides a truly special beach vacation. However, while some countries, like Costa Rica and Belize, are no stranger to high-end tourism, other countries, like Guatemala, Panama and Nicaragua are more recently hitting their stride. That’s why we encourage you to consider supporting these smaller economies that need it, and opt for resorts that employ locals and give back to their communities. Moreover, several countries in Central America are still developing economically, so it’s crucial to approach your Central America trip with care. Work with your Fora advisor – many are experts in planning Central America vacations – to ensure you are celebrating and supporting the region in the most responsible way.

Most people take a Central America trip during the winter or early spring. This is when the region’s coasts enjoy beach-friendly temperatures and blue skies (providing an ideal tropical escape from cold or unpleasant weather in the US). Keep in mind that late summer and early fall (August-October) is considered the rainy season, which means regular storms and generally muggy weather. If you’re looking to save some money on room rates, consider traveling during the months of May or November, before or after high season, when the weather is still perfect. Keep in mind that due to the region’s dramatic topography (it’s in between two oceans, after all), the weather can vary dramatically from region to region.

Each country in Central America has its own set of entry and exit requirements. Your Fora Advisor can alert you to your destination’s specific entry and exit requirements, and you can check out the official government websites for more information.
