We're planning a ten-day jaunt in Central America. Recommendations for the best scenic, jungly country to visit?
My wife and I have traveled hither, thither and yon -- to undeveloped nations as well as developed -- but Central America has passed us by. To remedy this, we want to visit one of the Central American countries in February. But we're stymied as to which country best fits the bill.
Topping the wish list:
Leafy jungles with tropical wildlife.
Tasty fish, shellfish and veggie dishes.
That "you're not in Kansas anymore" feeling.
Acceptable, but not deal killers:
Thanks but no thanks:
Adventurous travel (eco-tourism, treks, etc.). (Nothing against these, but we're chillin' this time around).
Long plane and bus rides.
Noisy cities (if avoidable).
Preferably, we'd like to aim for a single country, and keep the in-country travel to a minimum. Right now, Honduras, Panama, and especially Guatemala seem like our best bets. Suggestions?
