Central America is a narrow strip of land joining the North American and South American continent.  At its northern end, Honduras has many Mayan ruins and Belize offers some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world off its cays.  Costa Rica is a popular destination for group tours starting in San Jose and visitng both coasts.  Costa Rica is also a popular retirement destination due to its low real estate costs and low cost of living.  At the southern most end of Central America, the land direction shifts east / west through Panama and then joins on to South America.  Many people who visit Panama are surporsed to discover that the Panama Canal travels north and south between the Pacific and the Atlantic.
