The diversity of landscapes, cultures and opportunities excites, entices, and bewilders. The scope for adventurous holidays is vast, whether it be climbing a volcano, scuba-diving, whitewater rafting or seeking out the elusive quetzal bird from the forests of Guatemala right down to Panama. Equally enticing is the cultural variety: the pyramids of the Maya; the Spanish colonial heritage; indigenous markets; modern and dynamic museums and art; the cuisine; or the mere prospect of lazing at some palm-fringed hideaway with golden sands.
