Costa Rica Vacation Rentals
Beaches, tropical ecological parks, mountain retreats, vibrant city life and a vast array of plants and wildlife--Costa Rica has it all. This affordable and friendly nation is best known for its diverse collection of plants and animals. You'll find orchids, jaguars, monkeys and birds of every hue. In fact, a full 25 percent of Costa Rica's land is part of a national park or other protected area. Staying in a Costa Rica vacation home allows you to be near all of this splendor, while enjoying the warm welcome of the Costa Rican people.
But, Costa Rica isn't just about viewing wildlife. The small nation features long, white sand beaches on both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts with some of the region's best snorkeling and diving. In San Jose, you'll find museums that chronicle Costa Rica's varied history, restaurants that rival those in New York and Los Angeles and shopping for coffee, wooden crafts and the country's signature, colorful textiles.
Belize Vacation Rentals
World-class snorkeling and diving along one of the world's natural coral barrier reefs is the major draw to the tiny Caribbean nation of Belize. However, water sports aren't the only things Belize has to offer. There are deep sea fishing excursions, Mayan ruins to visit and limestone caves to explore. Plus, there are long, uncrowded beaches where you can spend an afternoon--or a week--reading and relaxing. A Belize vacation rental puts you in the middle of all of this natural beauty.
Honduras Vacation Rentals
Honduras, nestled among Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala, Honduras is sometimes overlooked in favor of the larger and flashier destinations of Panama and Costa Rica. That's too bad, because Honduras offers beautiful beaches, coral reefs with excellent snorkeling, and one of the most impressive ruins from the Mayan civilization. A Honduras vacation rental is a good way to experience the best of Honduras at a reasonable price.
Panama Vacation Rentals
If your idea of the perfect vacation is to experience a wide array of diverse activities without spending your entire vacation traveling, then a Panama vacation rental is for you. Panama, with beaches and ports on both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, is home to the Panama Canal, one of history's most difficult engineering feats as well as one of the world's leading shipping routes. Visitors can explore the site's museum, watch ships transiting the canal while you dining at a rooftop vantage point or take a sightseeing trip through the canal, itself.
Away from the canal, Panama offers a glimpse of its Spanish heritage at Panama Viejo, founded in 1519, hiking throughout the country's numerous national parks, coffee tasting in chic Panama City and boating and rafting in Panama's many rivers.
