Here are some great places to travel on a Central America vacation.
Belize is a mixture of Caribbean and Central American cultures and there is much to do. There are ancient Maya ruins, jungle trekking, boating, fishing, kite surfing and paragliding. Belize is a favorite dive spot of serious divers.
There is a coral reef that runs the entire length of the country. It is 185 miles long and is the largest reef in the Western Hemisphere and the second largest in the world. It has been called one of the seven underwater wonders of the world!

There are many fun things to do in Costa Rica on vacation if you love the outdoors.
See an active volcano (such as Arenal). The last eruption was 2009.
Rent a jeep and explore the country.
Stay at a rustic hotel or a top notch resort, your choice.
Take a canopy tour and slide down long zip lines between trees as the wind blows in your face. We did this on our trip and it was one of the highlights.
Take a horseback tour of the jungle and swim in a natural spring. The picture below is of me as I went to stand under the waterfall.
To say the least, it was quite a rush!

A Panama Canal Cruise
The number one attraction of Panama is a Panama Canal Cruise. It is an amazing engineering and human feat that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. The construction began in 1880 and it was completed in 1914.
Thousands of lives were lost in this massive effort. The vast majority of original structure and equipment are still in use. Going through the canal is a real treat for anyone interested in engineering and/or history.
