Central America

Central America is the tapering isthmus that bridges North America to South America. Firmly rooted in the tropics, this smouldering volcanic cusp hosts a strikingly beautiful landscape encompassing high altitude cloud forest, sacred lakes and tropical rainforest, to swampy mangroves and islands laced with coral. Sandwiched in between this surreal landscape are pockets of rich colonial splendour and the remnants of ancient civilisations from the Aztecs to the Maya buried deep within the tangled jungles of Central America.


For the wildlife enthusiast it is worth noting that Central America alone lays claim to 10% of the world’s biodiversity. Costa Rica is a top destination for nature lovers as it has the richest diversity of flora and fauna on the planet.  During a Central America holiday you can dive with nurse sharks and sting rays along the Northern Cayes of Belize, glimpse hummingbirds and resplendent quetzal in the cloud forests of Costa Rica and Panama, and observe thousands of Olive Ridley turtles descending upon the Pacific shores of Nicaragua to lay eggs. 

Maya Culture

Discover the realm of the Maya, the most advanced pre-Columbian civilization, at sites strewn throughout southern Mexico , Belize, Guatemala,  El Salvador and Honduras.

Action and Adventure

Those seeking adventure can also zip-wire through the forest canopies of Costa Rica, explore the stark and rugged scenery in Mexico’s Copper Canyon, and trek to the summit of Volcán Maderas on Ometepe Island in Nicaragua: the possibilities are endless.

Spanish Colonial Interests

Admire the beautiful Spanish colonial architecture in the charming cities through Central America.


Holiday in Central America and choose your slice of paradise from miles of pristine sandy beaches lining the Caribbean Coast or grab your surfboard and head towards the Pacific Coast renowned for its tremendous surf. Mexico's Riviera Mayo takes some beating for beach holidays or the Belize Cayes with its wildlife rich waters offers fantastic snorkelling.

These are merely a handful of highlights Central America has to offer. Steppes Travel has the inside knowledge and passion to create a truly thrilling tailor-made holiday to Central America for you.
