Central America prices

Central America is popular with backpackers from around the world all year round, but during the dry season from November through April it’s also filled with sun-seeking tourists from North America as well as Europe.

The resort areas of Belize and Costa Rica are the most expensive places to visit in the region, though even there prices tend to be low by North American or European standards. Go anywhere else and things can get really cheap.

We’ll be ramping up our Central America coverage soon to cover at least one major city in each country, as well as other major tourist centers. Stay tuned.
