    Nicaragua and its tiny neighbour El Salvador are both considered off the beaten track, and all the more attractive for that. Little visited and with fairly rudimentary infrastructure they offer the visitor a rewarding experience akin to what travellers enjoyed in other parts of the continent decades ago

    Venture off the beaten track in Guatemala and little-visited Honduras to explore Mayan ruins in intact jungle settings and the undeveloped Caribbean coast and coral islands. From Antigua, Guatemala’s colonial masterpiece, continue to Mayan Tikal and Copán where temples and pyramids emerge above the rainforest canopy. Round off the holiday at the pearl white beaches of Roatán Island, maybe with a bit of snorkelling or scuba diving.
