Central America offers a blend of the exotic, the cultural and the qualities of a traditional vacation spot that makes the region an ideal fit for family vacations. You can explore ancient archeological sites one day, zip-line through a rainforest the next and then relax on the beach. From the astonishing variety of animal life on the Galapagos Islands to Belize’s treasure trove of Mayan ruins, you and your kids will find no shortage of adventure in Central America. Meet howler monkeys and giant tortoises, swim with dolphins or snorkel to view underwater landscapes. Central America, particularly Costa Rica, also offers many opportunities for eco-tourism. There’s no better place to learn about saving the rainforests than in a rainforest, after all!
The islands of the Caribbean are well known for their luxurious white sand beaches, but there are also some even more exotic pink beaches in the area, particularly on Bermuda. Martinique boasts a black sand beach that evokes the majesty of the volcano that created it. The variety of beaches in the Caribbean means that no matter what your family likes to do during a day on the beach, you can find the stretch of shore that is the perfect fit.
BelizeTo most visitors, Belize City is simply a jumping-off point for other destinations in the country. But the low-slung coastal town, with a population of just 50,000, has plenty to keep you busy, from colonial-era museums to low-key cafés. Once a hub for 17th-century pirates and the 19th-century mahogany trade, Belize City has a great history as a raf?sh port. The nation didn’t gain independence from the British until 1981, and its Creole, mestizo, African, and Mayan descendants share a culture that’s part prim-English style and part no-worries island attitude. Wooden gingerbread cottages crowd the city’s narrow streets, and a jumble of motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists provide a constant buzz. Though slightly gritty, Belize City has its own brand of character to spare (there is not a strip mall or a fast-food joint around). Read more from the editors at Travel+Leisure. (Read more)
GuatemalaMayan temples dripping with vines—sure. But if you’re feeling blasé about archaeological sites, ancient cultures, tropical rainforests and oh, volcano climbing, you don’t have to cross Guatemala off your list. Beach bums can swing in hammocks and swim with sea turtles in coastal paradise Monterrico. Linguists will love the Spanish schools of crisp, clean Antigua. A shopper? Head to traditional town Chichicastenango and cruise for crafts at the biggest and oldest market in Central America. Those in need of a long exhale will find room to breathe in the picture-perfect villages of volcanic Lake Atitlan. Even sprawling and smoggy Guatemala City has something to offer—the country’s best museums, which feature everything from pre-Hispanic artifacts to cutting-edge contemporary art. Want to experience the Guatemala culture of today? Eat fiambre and fly giant kites in Santiago Sacatepequez’s Dia de los Muertos celebrations. And if that gets boring, there’s always the awe-inspiring, dumb-founding, jaw-dropping Mayan ruins. Watch the sun rise over massive Tikal, soak in the imposing sculpture of Quirigua, and relive your favorite moments of the television show Survivor at Yaxha. But only, you know, if you have time.

Costa RicaNamed “the rich coast” by Spanish conquistadors who first made landfall here in 1502, Costa Rica is one of the planet’s most naturally splendid and biologically diverse regions. Though largely undeveloped until the mid-20th century (due to its lack of traditional “riches”—gold, silver, spices), the country is today drawing new generations of explorers with more lasting treasures: smoldering volcanoes, misty cloud forests, rare wildlife and bird species, and a surfeit of beaches that are the gateway to world-class surfing, diving, and sportfishing.
