Central America is a rough, volcano-strewn land that beckons to the adventurous PlanetHopper! like few other places in the world. For many years, this slender region that forms the conduit between North and South America has remained somewhat undiscovered by globetrotters. However, this trend is starting to change as more and more people discover the amazing blend of world-class historical sites and virtually incomparable adrenaline activities that will rapidly accelerate the heart rate of even the most seasoned traveler. At the top of any list surely has to be the region's awesome diving options that are highlighted by Belize's amazing barrier reef system (and iconic Blue Hole) and Honduras' Útila Island, where you can dive with the massive whale sharks. Then, of course, you can't overlook the Mayan ruins of Tikal and Copán, which easily rank amongst the world's greatest ancient monuments. However, more than anything else, Central America provides one of the world's best places to commune with mother nature. Whether you choose to scale the mighty volcanic cone of Nicaragua's Ometepe Island, where you can stare into the belly of the beast, or instead wander through the pristine forests of Costa Rica's Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, there is one thing that is absolutely guaranteed - Central America will wow you, intrigue you, and seduce you with its wonders and fuel your travel dreams.
