So you’re planning a trip to Central America! It’s an exciting destination for adventurous travelers.

Maybe go on a small-ship Costa Rica adventure cruise? Think amazing wildlife! Sloths, snakes and spiders…

And, oh, the beautiful birds in Costa Rica! Not to mention the treetop canopy walks, white-water rafting and natural hot springs there.

The eco-friendly digs in Bocas del Toro, Panama, are also great for an escape from the world.
