The archaeological sites of Chichén Itzá, Tulum, Palenque, Uxmal and Edzná on the Yucatán peninsula, Lamanai in Belize, Tikal in Guatemala… So many cities recognised as guarding impressive vestiges of the past, bearing witness to a powerful and millenary civilisation. Pyramids, observatories, temples and ornaments are still being discovered, reminding visitors that not all Mayan secrets have yet been unravelled.
Visiting extraordinary Mayan sites
Discovering a unique terrestrial and sub-aquatic natural world
Below the sea or on the land, Central America offers a diversity of breath-taking panoramas. The Blue Hole of Belize, the Pearl Islands of Panama, the Islands of the Gulf of California and the coral reef of the Mayan barrier in Mexico are replete with underwater sites that play home to rich fauna, to be explored on snorkelling tours. The many botanical gardens and national parks of Costa Rica, Lake Atitlán and the volcanic regions of Guatemala or Nicaragua will immerse you in lush flora and contrasting landscapes.

The fortified city of Campeche or bustling Mérida in Mexico, the fortresses of Omoa in El Salvador or San Felipe in Guatemala, the historic centres of La Antigua, Belize City, Granada in Nicaragua, Panama ... These cities bearing the architectural footprint of Spanish, French, English and Italian influences will allow you to trace the colonial history and charm of these countries.
