As temperatures drop in much of the world, there is no better place to escape than to central America and here are some destinations welcoming tourists right now.


Tourists are sure to marvel at all there is to explore in Panama. For instance, in Panama City, go on a tour of the Panama Canal and the Panamá Viejo heritage site, the last fortress of the ancient city. In the rural interior, don’t miss the unforgettable beaches in Colon or Playa Blanca, and go to Boquete for jungle excursions in the mountains.

Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic’s capital city, Punta Cana, is home to plenty of beachside resorts, many of them “all-inclusive”. Inexpensive water sports and activities are also available along the island’s beaches and are perfect for all ages. Some resorts feature a variety of on-site activities, such as restaurants, bars, and even live showcases of Latin dance. In any case, make sure to reach out to accommodations about their different services.

Costa Rica

The Costa Rican capital, San José, hosts many museums of Central American history. However, as Costa Rica is considered one of the most biodiverse countries on Earth, the natural sites outside of the city are most worth seeing. Above all, make sure to get lost in its natural beauty. For instance, explore the deep forests and wildlife in Puerto Viejo and the turtle-filled Tortuguero beach.

In order to ensure a safe and secure journey, tourists should check the latest requirements in their destination country, including Covid-19 restrictions.
