Central America is one of the best places in the world for backpacker tours, owing to its deluge of life-affirming experiences and slightly volatile nature. This is a place where you'll be glad to have all your transport, passes and accommmodation pre-arranged, meaning you can just sit back and enjoy the ride.
Many tours in Central America include an element of wildlife conservation - particularly with sea turtles in places like Costa Rica - or volunteering in some other capacity. If you'd rather just travel for leisure and leisure alone, you'll find plenty of options for that too.
