    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.

    Things to Do with a Central America and Mexico Hotel

    Representing a web of intriguing cultures, ancient ruins, tropical wildlife and adventure, CEntral America is where you could find yourself climbing active volcanoes one day and rambling through the jungle past howler monkeys and pumas the next. The beaches are world class and both surfers and divers will find themselves in paradise. Exploring hidden villages and walking through cobbled streets of beautiful Spanish colonial towns, this is really is a fascinating part of the globe.

    "Great All-Inclusive Resort"
    I would absolutely recommend this hotel, and will definitely return. Food was great (so many options - loved pizza at The Sol Bar, and lattes at Aroma); there were lots of pools and we loved the beach/pool beds; beach was beautiful; Miile Spa was awesome (everyday specials were offered at the spa; I booked an 80 minute holistic soothing massage, and Santiago gave me one of the best massages I have ever had. Ismael was great as he led me through the hour long complimentary aqua wellness, and that was a fabulous experience too). There were daily activities around the pool (if you wanted to participate) and we especially enjoyed the guacamole and cerviche 'cooking lesson' led by Carlos, Leyde and chef Wilbert. Manuel, at the Agave restaurant, gave us a great Tequila lesson, of course letting us sample it all!

    "quick get-away"
    The Royal Hideaway is a little gem. We found the staff to be incredible - very nice, gracious, attentive. The grounds were very clean and the service, impeccable. The clientele is a bit older; we are in our early 40's and felt as though we were the youngest there. But, having the peace and quiet to come home to is nice. Playacar is a fabulous neighborhood. It's very safe and filled with people bustling around. And, downtown Playa is a quick walk from the resort - through neighborhoods or on the beach. Lovely.

    "Wonderful experience"
    Incredible service provided by bartenders Roy and Rubicel. They both continued to remember our family and each special request. They always gave their 100% and the service will stand out among the best. Above and beyond service by lifeguard, firstaider Gustavo. He not only stopped to help my daughter, but went a step further to make her comfortable while tending to her foot. His kindness and professionalism will be forever remembered. Carlos from the photo centre, needs a huge pat on his back for his happiness and carefree attitude in making us laugh and feel totally welcome. His professional manner kept us coming back for his smile and amazing photography too. We will be planning our next visit very soon to Sandos Caracol Eco Resort.

    "Good Hotel Dangerous Beach "
    The hotel in general is good, lots of food bad quality. The facilites in general ara not bad, nice parking and the staff in general is very nice. A large pool and we enjoy the tenis court. It is all inclusive but good liquor or beer got to be paid. We have a terrible experience when we took a kayak from the ocean sports facilities, my son and I took one Kayac land we almost die, the whole thing went wrong, (I do Triatlón so I am use to open waters) we never got any instruction about the this specific Kayac, no lifeguards in the hotel, no assistance of all. We lost the Kayac, we swim to the shore for more than haft an hour. Terrible experience, we have good luck to tell this history. Just don't trust this beach, this hotel, this staff and don't move from your room if you want a safe vacation.
