4 Pieces of Advice for Traveling to Central America

After years of traveling in Central America with my family I learned a lot if things that can make your trips to this part of the world easier and cheaper.

Advice about Traveling to Central America

1. Seasonal Travel – You can get a much better room for the same amount of money if you travel during the rainy season to Costa Rica or Guatemala. Believe me, rain won’t be an issue because in these countries the rainy season isn’t more than a one or two hours of rain during the day.

2. Transportation – Flying from on country to the other is the best way to go, but can get a bit pricey, especially if you are visiting several countries.

3. Get off the Beaten Path – Belize is known for the Caribbean no stress mode. Especially  Ambergris Caye. This is an amazing island with tons of hotels and fun adventures.

4. Eating out and souvenirs – can also be a problem for your wallet. To avoid that I recommend you look for local, small restaurants. In them you will get a huge meal for $5 to $10. You can also go to street vendors instead of shops. You will get stuff up to 50% cheaper.
