Backpacking in Central America

PLEASE ONLY TRAVEL WHEN IT IS SAFE AND RESPONSIBLE TO DO SO. Articles have not been updated to reflect any travel restrictions which may be in place, so please check with the destination for up-to-date information. Thank you!

After backpacking in South America, I came home to try and forget the adventure but just couldn’t let go.  I flew to Cuba and spent just over a year exploring Cuba, Mexico and Central America – yet still didn’t manage to visit every country I wanted to.  I will go back, I am sure of that!  

Backpacking in Central America is in some ways similar to South America, yet the cultures and countries are notably different.  Each has its own spirit, and the indigenous cultures are fascinating to learn about, lending unique languages and traditions to the colourful countries.
