The proximity of Central America to the U.S. means that a beautiful vacation is within every budget. Lonely Planet has some fantastic ideas for island hopping down the Caribbean Coast.
Central America is the perfect destination for many reasons. From the beaches to the mountains, there is something for everyone. The culture and ancient history are top notch, too. Often, Spirit Airlines has deals to Central America for under $200 r/t. Keep an eye out for these amazing deals and save even more!
During my time traveling in Honduras, I found that the people in the rural areas were very hospitable. The cities have their sketchy areas, but generally they are easy to avoid. Food is delicious and cheap. Make sure to check out the local markets for exotic fruits and other offerings! Packing a small backpack means you will have less to worry about if you choose to take buses which are very popular.
