Escape the heat of Panama City for a day and visit Taboga Island where there are no cars, no rush and no noise, just the sound of the waves and a beautiful beach.
Panama City, the largest city and capital of Panama, is a vibrant city that combines modern architecture with colonial history, and offers beach getaways as well as a rainforest, not to forget the famous Canal.
When you travel long term, your budget becomes your Bible. This is why we wanted to share a break down on how much it cost for us to travel through Central America – including all the splurges and island vacations.
On a stroll through Casco Viejo you will see Panama’s colonial past on every corner: French and Spanish architecture, narrow brick lanes, tree-filled plazas and beautiful churches. Let us take you on a photographic tour of Casco Viejo!
The long anticipated ‘luxury’ train ride from Panama City to Colon turned out to be quite different from what we had expected. Is it worth taking the train along the Canal?
La Fortuna should not be missed on a visit to Costa Rica- a gorgeous waterfall, hot springs and a volcano, plus some of the country’s most beautiful scenery!
Want the detail on the best beaches to see across Central America? Here are some to try!
Costa Rica is the gem in Central America’s tourism crown: lush, green jungles, wild animals, breathtaking beaches and a well-developed infrastructure make a trip to Costa Rica as easy as it can be adventurous, suitable for many different types of visitors. The level of development, however, has also raised prices on goods and services, hotel rates and transportation to a level that most budget travelers (falsely) believe to be out of their range.
These thirty three things are just a start – there were so many positive aspects of our time in Costa Rica, we could easily list thirty three more! Feel free to share your favs here, too!
“EEEeee! This is just like Eat Pray Love!” Jaime squealed as we pedaled away from the bike rental shop on our shiny bikes to explore the Caribbean beaches of the Costa Rican coast. What we discovered were some of the most laid-back, beautiful beaches in Central America.
