Central America and Caribbean Vacations

From the ancient Mayan ruins on the continent to the beautiful island beaches of the Caribbean, Central America can be an amazing place to explore and have a leisure vacation. Most of the continental Central America was once home to the Mayans and a lot has been preserved, not just ruins, but also languages and traditions. For any history buff this are is quite an insightful place. As for the Caribbean, these islands are world famed since the days of the first European explorers. The largest of these islands is Cuba, which as of late has relaxed their foreign policy and accepts more and more tourists, including those from the USA. Cuba may be a poor country, but its natural beauty is remarkable and well worth visiting at least once.
