    Pocket Guide: Mexico and Central America

    Central America is overflowing with rainforests, unexplored ruins, wildlife and breathtaking beaches. Throw in bustling markets and expansive farms, whether you’re a thrill seeker or looking to relax, a hotel in Central America presents you with a ton of opportunities. Take in the 50-mile long Panama canal or sample some of the best coffee in the world in Costa Rica. Nearby Guatemala offers you volcanoes and jungle while Honduras and Belize are a dream for diving. Neighbouring Mexico has just as much to offer including palm-fringed beaches, steamy jungles and spicy, tasty food.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in Central America and Mexico

    Mexico — Take in the cactus rich deserts, smoking snow-capped volcanoes and a long coastline scattered with sandy beaches and wildlife lagoons. Book a hotel in Mexico and most of your time will be spent outside where you can take it easy eating on one of the many Pacific beaches, hiking Oaxaca’s mountain cloud forests or snorkelling in azure waters.

    Guatemala – Home to the largest Mayan ruin site in the world, this is a country rich in culture and history. It also offers vast amounts of natural beauty including Lake Atitlan with its picture-postcard perfect views surrounded by three volcanoes. River kayaking is a popular activity here – a brilliant way to take in the breathtaking views on offer.

    Panama — As well as being famous for its hats, Panama has beautiful clear turquoise seas, cloud forests and coffee farms to make it a top choice for a trip. You may find yourself exploring the ruins of Spanish forts or boating deep into indigenous territories. Zip line through the rainforest or swim alongside turtles – you won’t want to leave.

    Honduras – A vibrant and fascinating place, divers will be delighted by the Bay Islands of Honduras. Nature lovers will lap up the amazing scenery at more than a dozen national parks.

    Nicaragua – For the brave hearted, you can canoe through alligator infested wetlands but if architecture is your thing, the country is rich in colonial splendour.

    Things to See in with a Hotel in Central America and Mexico

    Guatemala is home to The Coco (or Wangki), Central America’s longest river: the canyon here is an unmissable sight where you can visit two bat caves, boulder hop and swim through the rapids. Central America is full of archaeological sites but Xunantunich in Belize is one of the most respected and a visit to Mexico wouldn’t be complete without seeing one El Castillo, the incredible Mayan pyramid at Chichen Itza.

    "Good for a weekend getaway"
    Weve never stayed at an all inclusive, so this was all new for us. Villa rooms were in the process of being renovated - our assigned luxury garden view had no garden view, a broken safe, non functioning remote , missing table lamps and an overflowing toilet. There was no concierge at our villa to help us. Eventually changed to a better villa with a nice garden view. As the meals are all inclusive, we were not ready to be on the other side of consumer/clent services. It was very difficult to find dinner availability between 6:30 and 9pm. Restaurants claimed they were fully booked despite many empty tables. We were advised we could always eat in our room 24/7! You must reserve dining prior to arrival. As well, the beach was quite windy so the spectacular pools with ocean views were busy. unfortunately, there are not enough pool lounges for guests, guests were claiming chairs at 6am! The beach is truly spectacular, the hotel grounds are lovely and the food was excellent. Staff is very friendly, but not very accommodating. Drinks are watered down and the house wines need improvement.

    "Decent hotel/needs more staff."
    Over-all this was a great hotel for families with younger (3-12) children. The hotel provided great entertainment from the aqua park to the evening shows. However, the rooms were dated and staff was always late to clean the room...if they cleaned it at all. The food was good with enough variety. In all honesty, if the resort had more staff to accommodate their guests, it could be much better. If you are a beach goer, this is not the resort for you as the beach is rocky and full of seasweed.

    Camino Real Santa Fe

    Guillermo Gonzalez Camarena 300, Mexico City - Map
    "Definitely for on-the-go travelers. "
    The lobby, room, and location was nice. The hotel is located in a business district. The hotel is kept nice and clean, so is the room, but besides offering a nice place to sleep and a nice bathroom for freshening up, they don't provide much. There are a lot of cabinets to store your belongings. However the overall lighting of the room was pretty dim, even the desk lamp wasn't bright and shined a warm yellow light. The room doesn't offer a microwave or even a coffee maker but a mini fridge and a safe, and breakfast is not included. So you are not really given the option to eat hot food in your room if you choose not to dine downstairs. I consider this a negative because the Holiday Inn close by offered these amenities at half the price I paid for this hotel. Granted there are many small resturants, coffee shops and corner stores that is of walking distance from the hotel's location. Overall, it was an okay experience. Definitely recommended for travelers who are not expecting much, or will most likely be out the whole day. I personally will probably not choose this hotel again.

    Building 1 room 120 was perfect! There is only one pool. I wish there was more of a variety of food available. I tried to eat guacamole and salsa daily; speciality restaurants were good. The Oriental restaurant was the best! The beach wasn't anything to write home about. Phenomenal staff. Jose with TAM was great! Drink service was great!
