Central America has many attractions for the traveler, from virgin beaches to the infinite cultural richness to adventure sports or its exuberant nature. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions in the world, which is gradually opening up to international tourism. The commitment of its rulers to sustainable tourism, without leaving aside the large resorts that are so popular among Western tourists, is giving excellent results.
Central America, a tiny bridge crisscrossed by beaches and volcanoes that divides the oceans and connects the greater Americas, is the “new” destination for adventure and fun experiences in Latin America. Many trips begin in the exclusive eco-lodges of Costa Rica or the Mayan ruins of Guatemala (despite the tourist boom, Tikal still feels lost in the jungle).
The Caribbean side of Central America boasts white-sand shores and English-speaking cultures such as Belize, the Bay Islands in Honduras and the Corn Islands in Nicaragua, both fantastic spots for cheap diving among sharks and rays. The best surf spots are in the Pacific area, especially in the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica, the “surf villages” of La Libertad (El Salvador) and the breaks near León in Nicaragua.

Sightseeing in Central America and the Caribbean
BangladeshBangladeshBy far and away the least visited neighbor in South Asia is one of the cheapest countries in the world to travel to. Overshadowed by two tourism giants like India and Nepal, Bangladesh falls short of great attractions that catch the eye, which is why so few people dedicate part of their itinerary to it.The experience of traveling to Bangladesh is incomparable to any other, or at least that’s how it felt to me. Because there is so little tourism, any foreigner is a big novelty, and that instantly makes you a celebrity. From invitations to houses to groups of people chasing us to take pictures with me and my partner (or just to take a closer look at us), every day we spent in Bangladesh was an unforgettable anecdote.Cost-wise, traveling in Bangladesh is generally even cheaper than traveling in India. Only in accommodation, having much less variety for different budgets, you will have to calculate a little more.
