Central America Hotels

You don't have to rough it-but you can. Tourism is strong and growing across the region, which makes it easy to find accommodation to suit your needs. Whether you long to doze in a hammock slung between two trees on a beach or in a plush bed in a luxury suite, you won't be disappointed.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • In most areas in Central America, even hotels and resorts that are considered high-end can be affordable, which means you can travel luxuriously without shelling out too much money.
  • It isn't easy to find organized campsites in Central America, but many beaches allow you to pitch a tent or sleep in hammocks in designated areas. Safety may be an issue, however. This thread from a BootsnAll travel forum discusses the issue.
  • If you are trying to conserve cash, camping is not your only option. You can stay in guesthouses or hostels, often for less than $20 per night, or arrange a home-stay with a local family, usually for under $100 per week. Home stays are more common in language-school areas; GoAbroad provides a language school search engine for all countries.
