What Central American destination would best fit my travel style??

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are trying to decide on a Central American destination, but we need A LOT of help.

We usually travel to Western Europe for vacation, but have decided to try something different this time. The hard part is that we are not too into "beachy" vacations. We like a lot of history and culture, and definitely good food. I think the idea of seeing monkeys and zip lining in Costa Rica sounds really fun, but I also like what I hear about Antigua Guatemala...very Spanish/colonial. Basically, we like to keep busy. I want to stretch the limits of what we normally enjoy and see unique things, but don't want to be stuck at a resort the entire time. And we are open to any other destinations in Central America as well. We are 33 years of age and in good physical condition.

Can you tell us what destinations we might most enjoy??

Thanks!!
