Most people, when they think of Central America the first image that comes to their mind are beaches, jungles and small thatched ranchos. Another common misconception about it is that it mostly is about hotels. You do find a lot of that in the region but the truth is that there are also many options out there for a luxurious vacation.
There are tons of luxury resorts and boutique hotels that you can choose from. I have come up with a short list of luxury hotels in each of the Countries from the region.
