Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua are all amazing Central American countries with their fare share of wildlife, stunning landscapes and opportunity for outdoor activities. Costa Rica offers some of the best surfing spots in the world and incomparable routes for hiking in the rainforest. Panama’s crystal-clear water is perfect for scuba diving and the Archipelago of Bocas del Toro is ideal to sea kayak between islands. Practicing your Spanish and intercultural competence in Nicaragua will sharpen these important skills and allow you to get an image of Central American culture as a whole.
