Why you should travel to Central America
In addition, the countries are really affordable, especially for backpackers, and the infrastructure is well developed, making it easy to get from one country to the next. You probably asked yourself if a backpacking tour through Central America or especially through countries like Honduras is really safe. You hear about thefts and robberies. We can reassure you! As you can read in our travel blogs about Central America, you can travel through the countries without any danger. If you want to be extra safe, it is best to use tourist shuttles and leave out hotspots like San Pedro Sula.
In general, according to our travel guides about Central America, you should not rush too much during your trip and allow about three to four weeks per country for what you want to visit, because there is just soooooo much to see and do!
What makes Central America special?
Surely you have heard of the rainy and hurricane season. You should definitely be prepared for rain and storms, but in Central America it rains for one or two hours and the sun comes out again. And the locals are very well prepared against hurricanes, so you don't have to worry. By the way, you can save a few dollars during the rainy season because, as you might expect, the accommodations are often a little bit more reasonable at that time. For more tips on this topic, check out our travel blogs about Central America.
As an alternative to the ruins of Central America, you can also follow the footsteps of the colonial powers by exploring old cities that were influenced by the French, Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch. For example, take a look at the old town of Antigua, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage, and tell us about your experiences in your next travel blog about Central America.
Are you an animal lover? Visit the fascinating red frogs on Red Frog Beach, watch the starfish in the crystal clear waters of Boca de Drago and swim with whale sharks, the world’s largest fish. Please take care to book local providers who care about the welfare of the animals.
