If you think Spanish is the sexiest language in the world and you could easily eat corn (done all ways) for the rest of your life, then what are you waiting for? Vamanos to Central America!

Whether you wanna gorge on deep fried foods and amazing condiments in Belize, dance sexy in Havana or celebrate death with sugar skulls and flowers in Mexico, Central America’s intoxicating rhythms and friendly locals will win you over with one beat of a Honduran drum. So jump on a Geckos Central America tour and go snorkelling at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, wave away the cigar stink in Cuba and dive into a sacred sink hole in the Yucatan Peninsula while you get into the Central American groove.

Why we love Central America

Monteverde cloud forest reserve travellers bridge Costa Rica

Walk through the clouds at Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve

Taking its name from the semi-permanent clouds that hug the tree canopy, cloud forests are a hazy, tropical paradise. Try and spot some of the incredible wildlife that call Monteverde home (including hummingbirds, monkeys and more than 1,200 species of amphibians) as you zip-line through the forest.

Caye-Caulker Snorkelling coral at Belize

Snorkel the Belize Barrier Reef

A spectacular, underwater kaleidoscope of colours, the Belize Barrier Reef is the largest reef system in the northern hemisphere! Scuba divers and snorkelers flock to here to swim amongst the bright pink, orange, red and blue coral, as well as the diverse array of fish, sponges and marine species that make the Belize Barrier Reef one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world.

Pop on a snorkel and dive into Belize

Colonial architecture Antigua Guatemala

Colonial charm with a Caribbean twist in Antigua

Antiguans like to boast they have ‘a beach for each day of the year’. We don’t know if it’s true but we’re up for the challenge. What makes this sun-kissed island so special is its impressive collection of preserved colonial architecture – a cobblestone maze of colonial buildings, churches and plazas, flanked by three volcanoes. Plus lots of idyllic Caribbean beaches!

Come wander Antigua with us

Chichen-Itza Mayan ruins Mexico

Explore Mexico’s ancient ruins

Mexico’s ancient civilisations sure knew how to build things that last. Massive pyramids and various archaeological sites scattered across the country provide an incredible glimpse into the past. From the Tulum ruins overlooking the Caribbean to the Mayan complex of Chichen Itza in Yucatan, there are plenty of incredible sites to see in between sessions at the beach.

Unearth your inner archaeologist in Mexico

A Local house window at Havana Cuba

Wander through colourful Havana

Crumbling, but not quite. Caribbean, but not quite. Havana’s fascinating social and political history permeates its weathered colonial architecture. You can catch glimpses of the city’s former wealth down every street, which are lined with colourful buildings. Famed for being Ernest Hemingway’s former stomping ground, quality cigars and a thriving cultural scene, there’s no place quite like Havana.

Run wild in Cuba

Ometepe island volcano Nicaragua

Discover the twin peaks of Ometepe Island

The two large volcanoes rising out of Lake Nicaragua provide a stunning symmetrical backdrop to this isolated tropical retreat. Soak up the sun as you lay on black sand beaches, try your hand reading the island’s petroglyphs (ancient rock carvings) or spot wildlife as you kayak down the Istian River – all while the call of howler monkeys echo in the background. This is island living at its best.
