Central America is a very popular destination for all travellers and increasingly backpackers and families. Surrounded by the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, Central America covers the area from Mexico to Panama. Tropical rainforests filled with unexplored Mayan ruins, the native Chichicastenango market, La Cieba carnival, live volcanoes and the well-preserved colonial city of Antigua, make Central America the popular destination it has come to be.
If you are travelling to Panama and plan to travel east of the Panama Canal, then you should also consider Yellow Fever vaccination.
Central America is a very mixed area and you may be at risk to different diseases in different countries.
