Considered the intersection of the Americas, Central America is a thin stretch of countries where life is dictated by the ebb and flow of the ocean. Forming largely like its Caribbean neighbors, the continent is home to the volcanic highlands of Costa Rica, the San Blas Archipelago of Panama and the pristine islets of Lake Nicaragua in the country’s colonial city of Granada. Separated only by the Caribbean Sea, Central America is just a short jaunt away from the Caribbean’s finest islands, where you can hop from countries like Puerto Rico, Cuba and Jamaica by boat.
