Central America & Mexico Travel Guide

A culinary journey through Central America

Central Americans are united by a common religion (Roman Catholocism) and a common language (Spanish) and a common staple food (beans and rice). But search beyond the beans and rice, and you'll discover a plethora of rich culinary cultures dotted throughout the region. Adventure Life's Central America experts pick the top foodie tours:

Antigua Culinary Tour 
Guatemala's unofficial cultural capital, Antigua, is a magnet for the country's finest chefs and restaurants. Take to the street for street eats, then go to the local market to buy ingredients for your cooking class. 

Nicaragua Culinary Experience 
Explore Leon and Granada as you rub shoulders with top-shelf chefs, learn how to prepare traditional fare, and taste your way through the best of Nicaragua.

Living Maya Experience in Belize 
Convene with Mayan families, sample local delicacies and even learn how to make chocolate from a cocoa tree.
